A three-day symposium, starting today, marks the centenary of Wolfgang Paul, born 10 August 1913 in Lorenzkirch, Germany. Having spent a year as a guest at CERN in 1959, he became director of the Nuclear Physics Division (1964–67) and later served as chair of the Scientific Policy Committee and as a delegate to Council.
