Young Chemists to the 40th IUPAC Congress

The 40th IUPAC Congress will be held 14-19 August 2005 in Beijing, China, on the theme “Innovation in Chemistry.” To encourage young chemists to participate in this unique congress, the organizers have established two different programs, both offering travel assistance. The first program is especially targeted to young scientists from developing and economically disadvantaged countries; the second is open to chemists from any country. For each program respectively, about 30 and 20 awards of up to USD 1500 will be made available to qualified candidates to cover some or all of their Congress registration fees and/or some or all of their travel expenses.

Applications from candidates under age 40 are welcomed. Applications may be submitted directly to the address below. There is no specific application form, but applicants are required to provide:

  • a letter of application
  • a brief CV
  • a confirmation of their current status and affiliation
  • a publication list
  • a letter of support from the appropriate department head, dean, or laboratory supervisor
  • an abstract of the poster or paper to be presented at the Congress
  • estimates of the economy airfare to and from the Congress

The deadline for receipt of applications is 28 February 2005. Award of travel support will automatically include acceptance of a candidate’s abstract. As all abstracts are subject to adjudication, those candidates whose applications for travel support are unsuccessful could still have their abstracts accepted. All applicants will be notified of the outcome by 15 March 2005.

Applications should be sent to:

Prof. Xibai QIU
Secretary, IUPAC-05
c/o Chinese Chemical Society
No 2, Beiyijie St., Zhongguancun
Beijing 100080, China

Note: This opportunity for young chemists to participate in the 40th Congress is independent of the Young Observers program (described in the Nov-Dec 2004 CI), which is coordinated by the USA, UK, and IUPAC Secretariat.
