Paolo Budinich, one of the founding fathers of the ICTP and a host of other scientific institutions in Trieste, including SISSA (International School for Advanced Studies), as well as a leading advocate of scientific cooperation with central and eastern European countries, was honoured on the occasion of his 85th birthday at the International Conference on Science and Culture. The event was held in Losinj, Croatia, on 17-19 September. A Symposium on Future Challenges in Science, "dedicated to Daniele Amati for his next 70 years," took place in ICTP's Main Lecture Hall on 22 September. Amati, who succeeded Budinich as director of SISSA in 1986, has served in that capacity for the past 15 years. On 24 September, the ICTP officially dedicated the Juan José Giambiagi Lecture Room on the Lower Level of the Adriatico Guesthouse. Argentinean-born Giambiagi, who died in 1996, was one of the Centre's first Associates and a frequent visitor to Trieste during the 1960s and early 1970s. He served on the ICTP Scientific Council in the 1980s.
