Emeritus Professor Peter Poole passed away peacefully in Perth on 19 August 2017, in the company of his daughters, and three of his seven grandchildren. He was a pioneering leader at the University of Melbourne and elevated to the Pearcey Hall of Fame in 2010. Prof. Poole's legacy will continue to influence the ongoing activities of the School of Computing and Information Systems, and the University of Melbourne as a whole.

An event will be held later in 2017 to celebrate his contributions to the University and to computing in Australia; those wishing to remember Prof. Poole and honour his memory, will have the opportunity to donate to a scholarship fund for rural and disadvantaged students at Melbourne, as requested by his family.
