2006 IUPAC Poster Prizes Recipients

In 2004, the IUPAC Poster Prizes Program was implemented following a suggestion from Past President, Leiv Sydnes. Each year since then, the program has gained popularity and recognition. In 2006, more conferences and National Adhering Organizations offered the prizes than in any previous year. Fifteen IUPAC-sponsored conferences and thirteen NAO national meetings awarded the prizes. With the increase in the prizes, more young scientists are becoming aware of IUPAC and its activities, while increasing the prestige and international visibility of the conferences and national meetings. Typically, each meeting awards two prizes, with some meetings awarding three prizes. Each prize recipient receives a certificate signed by the IUPAC president, a copy of the IUPAC Gold Book, and a two-year subscription to Chemistry International.
