IUPAC 2013 Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering—Call for Nominations

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the IUPAC 2013 Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering Awards. The purpose of the awards program, initiated as part of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry celebrations, is to acknowledge and promote the work of women chemists/chemical engineers worldwide. In 2011, 23 women were honored during a ceremony held at the IUPAC Congress in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on 2 August 2011. The event was sponsored by a challenge grant from the American Chemical Society and by support from Dow Chemical (see Nov-Dec 2011 CI, pp. 19–21). A similar award ceremony will take place during the 2013 IUPAC Congress in August 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Awardees will be selected based on excellence in basic or applied research, distinguished accomplishments in teaching or education, or demonstrated leadership or managerial excellence in the chemical sciences. The Awards Committee is particularly interested in nominees with a history of leadership and/or community service during their careers.

Nomination

Each nomination requires a primary nominator and two secondary nominators who must each write a letter of recommendation in support of the nomination. A CV of the nominee is required. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

Nominations should be received by 1 April 2013 and submitted by e-mail to <info@iupac.org>.

Presentation

Awardees will be honored at the 2013 IUPAC World Chemistry Congress in Istanbul, Turkey. Each awardee will receive a certificate of recognition from IUPAC.
