IUCr 1996 17th General Assembly - Preliminary consideration of date and place of Nineteenth General Assembly

In accordance with By-Law 1.3, the General Assembly could give preliminary consideration to the place of the next but one General Assembly, namely the Nineteenth General Assembly to be held in 2002. The President announced that invitations had been received from the Israel Crystallographic Society to hold the Congress in Jerusalem, Israel, from the Science Council of Japan and the Crystallographic Society of Japan to hold the Congress in Yokohama, Japan, from the South African National Committee to hold the Congress in Durban, South Africa, and from the Spanish National Committee to hold the Congress in Barcelona, Spain. He reported that the Executive Committee had considered all the applications and found them to be in order. J. BERNSTEIN presented the formal invitation for Israel, Y. OHASHI and two convention representatives presented the formal invitation for Japan, J. C. A. BOEYENS presented the formal invitation from South Africa and C. MIRAVITLLES and a convention representative presented the formal invitation from Spain. A decision on which invitation to accept was delayed until the next session to give the delegates time to consider the choice [see Minute (27)]. At the request of A. A. CHERNOV, it was agreed that a table comparing the facilities offered at each site would be prepared and distributed to delegates before the next session. This was subsequently done by H. SCHENK.

The General Assembly gave preliminary acceptance to the invitation to hold the Nineteenth General Assembly in 2002 in Israel.
