IUCr 1996 Report - Sub-committee on the Union Calendar

The Sub-committee receives and considers requests for IUCr sponsorship and nominal financial support and makes recommendations to the Executive Committee. Acting on the recommendations made by the Sub-committee, during 1996 the Executive Committee approved sponsorship of several schools and meetings, mostly with financial support. Those held in 1996 are listed at the beginning of this Report of the Executive Committee. Those scheduled for 1997, but approved in 1996, are listed below:

5th International Symposium on Protein Structure Function Relationship and Workshop on Protein Structure Elucidation, Karachi, Pakistan, 6-9 and 11-16 January 1997.

BCA/CCG Sixth Intensive Course in X-ray Structure Analysis, Durham, UK, 7--14 April 1997.

26th International School of Crystallography: Electron Crystallography, Erice, Italy, 22 May-2 June 1997.

School on Direct Methods for Solving Macromolecular Structures, Erice, Italy, 22 May-2 June 1997.

5th European Powder Diffraction Conference (EPDIC 5), Parma, Italy, 25-28 May 1997.

Sagamore XII, Waskesiu, Canada, 27 July-1 August 1997.

International Conference on Aperiodic Crystals (Aperiodic '97), Alpe d'Huez, France, 27-31 August 1997.

Rietveld Summer School '97-PL (RSS97-PL), Cieszyn, Poland, 4-6 September 1997.

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. If organizers intend to publish proceedings, they should consider either a special issue of one of the journals of the IUCr or, for computing schools, the IUCr Crystallographic Symposia Series, which is published jointly by the IUCr and Oxford University Press.

Organizers of meetings wishing to seek IUCr sponsorship should submit applications at least nine months in advance of the meeting, writing to the Chairman of the Sub-committee. The present Chairman is Professor H. Schenk, Laboratory for Crystallography, University of Amsterdam, Nieuwe Achtergracht 166, 1018 WV Amsterdam, The Netherlands (e-mail: schenk@chem.uva.nl).

Applications for sponsorship of satellite meetings require the approval of the Chairman of 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 will be sent to the Chairman of the Congress Programme Committee for his approval or otherwise.

The IUCr continues to support and uphold ICSU's policy of non-discrimination and adheres to its decisions and procedures concerning the 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.
