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.

IUCr Newsletter in preparation for the Seattle Congress.
The General Assembly gave preliminary acceptance to the invitation to
hold the Nineteenth General Assembly in 2002 in Israel.
