Young Chemists to the 39th IUPAC Congress
Ottawa, 10-15 August 2003

The 39th IUPAC Congress and 86th Conference of the Canadian Society for Chemistry will be held August 10-15, 2003 at the Ottawa Congress Centre in Ottawa, Canada. The theme of the Congress is "Chemistry at the Interfaces." To encourage young chemists to participate in this unique congress, the organizers have established two different programs, both offering travel assistance. The first program is especially targeted to young scientists from developing and economically disadvantaged countries; the second is open to chemists from any country. For each program respectively, about 30 and 20 awards of up to USD 1500 will be made available to qualified candidates as a contribution to the costs of their travel to attend the Congress and to meet Congress registration fees.
