The Sub-committee on the Union Calendar is a sub-committee of the Executive Committee. 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 sponsor-ship and financial support by the IUCr and has made recommendations accordingly to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee's policy, of giving financial support especially devoted to help young scientists, was successfully applied. An important aspect that must be guaranteed by the organisers 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 organisational expenses. The IUCr also provided substantial financial support to the Seattle Congress and the Glasgow Congress. The financial support given to assist young scientists totalled CHF 64,409 in 1996, CHF 91,816 in 1997 and CHF 76,399 in 1998. This support has helped several hundred young scientists attend a scientific meeting during the triennium.

The organisers 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.

Organisers 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 Chair of the Sub-committee. The present Chair is H. Schenk. A new Chair will be appointed in Glasgow.
