VPHA website likely to retire in Aug 2024

Note on the future retiring of the VPHA website. 

The has been paid for, for one more year (I do this personally). Countdown should start for this website; nothing is forever. 

I expect the #VPHA #ALDep website to be up until about August 15, 2024, and then move to history - nicely after #ALDALE2024.

VPHA started about ten years ago, with a visible launch at ALD 2013 conference. In VPHA, the main mission has been accomplished, and it is a good time to wrap up the project and the site. Scientific peer-reviewed publications created:

CVD 2014 ALE essay
CVD 2015 ML essay
JVSTA 2017 review

More communications should come on the topic of retiring the site later, before site goes down. My goal as the long-lasting VPHA coordinator is, of course, to save the valuable materials created. More on the "how" and "where" parts, as said, later. 

In this post, I already want to express my thankfulness for all who contributed to VPHA - to my recollection this is over 70 people from over 20 countries. Thank you: We can say that we made history. I am also grateful for Tuomo Suntola, on whose support I have always been able to count.
