The Executive Committee has a Sub-committee on the Union Calendar to consider and to advise the Executive Committee on requests for IUCr sponsorship and financial support of meetings. The Chairman of the Sub-committee has been P. W. Codding in this triennium. Because of its healthy financial status, the IUCr has been able to increase its support for young scientists attending meetings. A list of IUCr-sponsored meetings is given in the Report of this Sub-committee.
Applications for sponsorship and financial support are considered if they are submitted at least nine months in advance of the date of the meeting. Requests from satellite meetings must be submitted, and possible financial support requested, through the organizing committee of the main meeting. Meetings (other than satellite meetings) scheduled to be held within two months before or after an IUCr Congress will not be considered for sponsorship. For any meetings scheduled to be held between two and three months before or after a Congress, the application for sponsorship requires the approval of the Chairman of the Congress Programme Committee.
The IUCr continues to support and uphold ICSU's policy of non-discrimination and adheres to its decisions and procedures concerning free circulation of scientists. Organizers of any meetings seeking IUCr sponsorship or support must assure the Calendar Sub-committee that the authorities of the country in which the meeting is to take place guarantee free entrance of bona fide scientists from all countries.
