Young Chemists to the 39th IUPAC
Ottawa, 10-15 August 2003
The 39th IUPAC Congress and 86th Conference of the Canadian
Society for Chemistry will be held August 10-15, 2003 at the Ottawa
Congress Centre in Ottawa, Canada. The theme of the Congress is "Chemistry
at the Interfaces." 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 as a contribution to the costs
of their travel to attend the Congress and to meet Congress registration
