The IUPAC General Assembly (GA) is the occasion for meetings of the statutory bodies of the Union, specifically of the Council, Bureau, Division Committees, and Standing Committees.

The 44th IUPAC General Assembly will be held 4-12 August 2007, in Torino, Italy, concurrently with the 41st IUPAC Congress. This Information Booklet contains information regarding the arrangements for the General Assembly.

The GA venue will be in the facilities of the Universita di Torino and the Politecnico di Torino, located in the right hand side of the Lingotto Complex (as viewed from the Via Nizza). The address is Via Nizza 230. The Lingotto buildings were built in the 1920s to serve as one of the first Fiat auto factories and were restructured by the architect Renzo Piano in the late 1980s to become an advanced multifunctional complex. Lingotto is a multifaceted facility, with an area of some hundred thousand square meters over four floors. The complex has an array of halls and meeting rooms equipped to serve a wide variety of purposes catering from 10 up to 2100 people. The facilities include a Conference Centre, a Fair Centre, an exhibition building, a hotel, an art gallery, a shopping centre, a multiplex cinema, car parks, and various restaurants and cafés.

The GA registration desk will open on Friday August 3rd from 14:00 to 17:00 and everyday after from 8:00 to 18:00. The GA registration desk will be located on the 3rd floor of the University of Torino part of the Lingotto building. The entrance and elevators are on the north end of the building. Signs will be posted on the outside of the Lingotto, on the corner of the Via Nizza.


The IUPAC Congress, held in conjunction with the General Assembly, will take place at the Lingotto Conference Centre. Please take a moment to review the Congress web site <www.iupac2007.org>. We would like to encourage you to take advantage of your participation in the IUPAC GA by also attending the Congress. The Promoting Committee IUPAC 2007 in conjunction with the Società Chimica Italiana (SCI) have arranged an impressive scientific programme entitled: Chemistry Protecting Health, Natural Environment and Cultural Heritage.

We look forward to seeing you in Torino!

The Information Booklet has been e-mailed (not mailed) to all expected participants on 20 November 2006. Please do contact the Secretariat if you have not received this e-mail and yet expect to participate in the GA.
