Young Observers Going to Beijing

IUPAC is pleased to announce its call for applications for Young Observers to participate in the 40th IUPAC Congress being held in Beijing 14–19 August 2005. The theme of the Congress is “Innovation in Chemistry.” To encourage young scientists to participate in this unique Congress, the organizers have established a program offering travel assistance. For details visit the congress Web site.

In the spirit of innovation, IUPAC will also facilitate the participation of Young Observers in the concurrent General Assembly. The Young Observer program provides an excellent opportunity for young scientists to establish international collaborations, gain knowledge of global research activities, and participate in IUPAC activities. Some Young Observers from previous assemblies have remained actively involved in IUPAC by joining and chairing subcommittees and task groups.

Awards will be offered by IUPAC to candidates from all National Adhering Organizations (NAOs) and Associate NAOs. Both the U.S. and U.K. NAOs will independently select and support the participation of young scientists from their countries as well. All successful candidates are expected to submit an abstract of a poster or paper to be presented at the Congress; such abstracts will be subject to adjudication as will all other submissions for presentation at the meeting.

For more details about these programs, including applications procedures, age limits, criteria for selection, and timelines/deadlines, please inquire to one of the following, depending on your current location:
• In the USA, contact Valerie Theberge at the National Research Council <iupac-us@nas.edu>
• In the UK, contact Stanley Langer at the Royal Society of Chemistry <langers@rsc.org>
• All other IUPAC NAOs/ANAOs, contact the IUPAC Secretariat <secretariat@iupac.org>
