IUCr Support for National Meetings in Developing Countries

The scope of meetings that may be supported through the Sub-committee on the Union Calendar has been extended so that national meetings that are held in developing countries are now included. Such meetings will also be eligible for support through the Visiting Professorship scheme, where appropriate.

Organizers of national meetings in developing countries interested in applying for support for young scientists and/or Visiting Professorships should contact the Chair of the Sub-committee on the Union Calendar (Professor G.R. Desiraju: or the Executive Secretary ( to request an application form.

(The IUCr Visiting Professorship Scheme will pay the travel and insurance costs for up to three eminent scientists to enable them to present a short course at a workshop or school. The local organizers cover the accommodation/subsistence expenses.)
