In 2010, coinciding with the Presidency of Professor Bernardo Rodríguez-Iturbe, the ISN celebrated its 50th anniversary. One of the highlights of the anniversary year was a scientific meeting inspired by the themes from the first ISN congress in 1960, reflecting on the past and looking into the future.
