IUCr 1993 Triennial Report - Sponsorship of meetings: Sub-committee on the Union Calendar

The Sub-committee on the Union Calendar is a Sub-committee of the Executive Committee and therefore, according to Statute 8.1, has no obligation to report to the General Assembly. However, a summary of its activities is given in this Appendix for the information of delegates.

During the period since the Bordeaux General Assembly, the Sub-committee has considered many requests for sponsorship and financial support by the IUCr and has made recommendations accordingly to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee's policy, of giving financial support specially devoted to help young scientists, was successfully applied. An important aspect that must be guaranteed by the organizers of all meetings sponsored by the IUCr is the free circulation of bona fide scientists.

The following meetings on topics of crystallographic significance have received IUCr sponsorship, financial support for young scientists and, often, additional finance for general organizational expenses. The IUCr also provided substantial financial support to the Bordeaux Congress and the Beijing Congress. The financial support given to assist young scientists totalled SwFr76 000 in 1990, SwFr 54000 in 1991 and SwFr90000 in 1992. The support for 1993 is even larger. Hence, this support has helped several hundred young scientists attend scientific meetings during the triennium.

The organizers of all IUCr-sponsored meetings are requested to recommend the journals of the IUCr as a suitable channel of publication for the original papers presented at the meeting. 68 papers presented at the International Conference on Small Angle Scattering, held at Leuven, Belgium, 6-9 August 1990, were published in J. Appl. Cryst. (1991), 24, 413-877.

Organizers of meetings wishing to seek IUCr sponsorship should submit applications at least nine months in advance of the date of the meeting, writing to the Chairman of the Sub-committee. The present Chairman is P. Coppens. A new Chairman will be appointed at Beijing. Applications for sponsorship of Satellite Meetings must be submitted through the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the main meeting.
