Peter Goddard, Master of St. John's College at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and David Olive, Research Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Wales in Swansea also in the United Kingdom, were awarded the Dirac Medal on 26 March. Goddard and Olive were honoured for their outstanding contributions to field and string theory. Following the ceremony, the award winners presented a public lecture titled "Strings, Monopoles and Duality." The Dirac Medal, first presented in 1985, is designed to recognise outstanding contributions to the fields of theoretical physics and mathematics. It is named in honour of Paul A.M. Dirac, considered one of the world's greatest physicists. Dirac, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933, was a staunch friend of the ICTP.
