IUPAC Poster Prizes Awarded
IUPAC Poster Prize Program
National Adhering Organizations and eligible IUPAC-sponsored
conferences are encouraged to use the IUPAC Poster Prize
program as a strategic tool to encourage interest in conferences
among young chemists. The Poster Prizes recognize outstanding
poster presentations at IUPAC Congresses, at IUPAC division/standing
committee-sponsored conferences, and at designated national
meeting. Each NAO may pick one conference a year at which
to award IUPAC Poster Prizes. Please contact the Secretariat
for more information and coordination details.
Two IUPAC Poster Prizes were awarded at the annual meeting of the Danish Chemical Society, which was held 9 June 2005 at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. Posters were presented from all of the Danish Universities by both students and professionals. Two student posters were selected to receive the prize. The first was presented by Stine Magnussen of the University of Southern Denmark, titled “Comparison of Volatile Organic Compound Measurements in Indoor and Outdoor Air in Austria and Denmark.” The second was by Kristian Jensen of the University of Roskilde, titled “Methyl Cobalt(III) complexes-DNA Alkylating Agents?”
The meeting featured plenary lectures on topics such as “Chemistry and Climate, or Vice Versa,” presented by Claus J. Nielsen of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oslo, and “Molecular Gastronomy,” by Thorvald Pedersen of the Royal Agricultural and Veterinary University.
