IUCr 1996 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 last 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 Beijing Congress and the Seattle Congress. The financial support given to assist young scientists totalled CHF 48763 in 1993, CHF 83728 in 1994 and CHF 90709 in 1995. This support has helped several hundred young scientists attend a scientific meeting 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.

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. W. Codding. A new Chairman will be appointed in Seattle. Applications for sponsorship of satellite meetings must be submitted through the Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the main meeting.
