Young Observers Going to Beijing
IUPAC is pleased to announce its call for applications
for Young Observers to participate in the 40th IUPAC Congress being
held in Beijing 14-19 August 2005. The theme of the Congress is
"Innovation in Chemistry." To encourage young
scientists to participate in this unique Congress, the organizers have
established a program offering travel assistance.

In the spirit of innovation, IUPAC will also facilitate
the participation of Young Observers in the concurrent General
Assembly. The Young Observer program provides an excellent opportunity
for young scientists to establish international collaborations, gain
knowledge of global research activities, and participate in IUPAC activities.
Some Young Observers from previous congresses have remained actively
involved in IUPAC by joining and chairing subcommittees and task groups.
Awards will be offered by IUPAC to candidates from all
National Adhering Organizations (NAOs) and Associate NAOs. Both the
U.S. and U.K. NAOs will independently select and support the participation
of young scientists from their countries as well. All successful candidates
are expected to submit an abstract of a poster or paper to be presented
at the Congress; such abstracts will be subject to adjudication as will
all other submissions for presentation at the meeting.
For more details about these programs, including applications
procedures, age limits, criteria for selection, and timelines/deadlines,
