Poster Prizes Established
For Immediate Release, 20 June 2004
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry has established
the IUPAC Poster Prizes to recognize outstanding poster presentations
at IUPAC Congresses and Division-sponsored conferences where poster
sessions are held. On request of a National Adhering Organization, they
may also be awarded at a single chosen national conference each year.
This program was approved at the Executive Committee Meeting in Bangalore,
India in April 2004. Typically, two prizes will be awarded, although
some conferences may award up to three prizes. The conference organizers
will oversee the selection of the prizewinners. The winners of the IUPAC
Poster Prizes will be given a certificate signed by the IUPAC President,
a copy of the Compendium of Chemical Terminology, and two years' subscription
to Chemistry International.
- Prizes will
be awarded at all IUPAC Congresses and Division sponsored meetings
where poster sessions are held.
- Prizes will
be awarded at national meetings if requested. Not more than one meeting
per country a year will apply, and that meeting should be selected
by the relevant NAO.
- In all cases
except IUPAC Congresses, there will be normally two, but a maximum
of three prizes per conference.
- Selection of
prizewinners is in the control of the conference organizers.
- Each prize will
consist of (i) a certificate signed by the President (ii) a copy of
the Gold Book (iii) two years subscription to Chemistry International.
Organizations are asked to inform their national chemical societies
of this program and to inform the Secretariat of any plans to award
IUPAC Poster Prizes at a national meeting. Likewise, Division Committees
are asked to inform the organizers of meetings sponsored by their Divisions
of this opportunity.
