The International Center for Theoretical Physics of the International Atomic Energy Agency was officially inaugurated on October 5 with the opening of a plasma‐physics seminar in Trieste. The new facility is the outgrowth of plans and discussions dating back to September 1960. The IAEA Board of Governors made the final decision for its establishment in June 1963 after the Italian government had offered to construct a building for the center, to provide a cash contribution of $250 000 annually for five years, and to provide staff services and fellowships. The IAEA will contribute up to $55 000 per year in fellowships and professorships plus cash contributions up to $110 000 over four years.
