IUPAC Notes for Authors

IUPAC Notes for Authors

1.Call for Papers
Contributed papers should be in the form of either oral or poster presentations. Participants wishing to present papers are invited to submit an abstract. Please indicate when you submit an abstract the oral or poster form you prefer. Please refer to the Final Program for the number assigned to your presentation. The scientific committee will take the final decision on the acceptance and form of the presentation. The deadline for abstract submission is post poned to June 15th.Both a short and a long abstract must be submitted.

-Short abstract. The short abstract submission is possible through the web site. In addition to the name and affiliation of authors, the body of the abstract is limited to a maximum of 1200 characters, and cannot contain figures and other objects. This submission is mandatory to be registered as authors and will be considered if the registration fee has been paid by June 15th, 2007. The short abstract will be printed in the Abstract Proceedings Book of the Congress only if the author has paid the registration fee within June, 15th 2007. The Abstract Proceedings Book will be given to all registered participants.
-Long Abstract. Authors must also submit – in addition to the short abstract of max. 1200 ASCII characters * a one/two page detailed abstract which may also include figures and tables. This more extensive abstract will be made available to the Scientific Program Committee and will also be made available on the CD of Long Abstracts (on an “as it is” basis) given to all registered participants.
The maximum permitted size of the detailed abstract is two A4 pages or 2.0 MB, whichever is less. The detailed abstract has to be submitted as .pdf file as an “first_author’slastname.pdf” file. Proofread your abstract after conversion, then upload via the on-line abstract submission system on the Congress web site. The long abstract file can also be submitted by e-mail attachment to the Secretariat before the deadline (June 10th, 2007). Since abstracts will be processed as received, all authors are responsible for providing complete and accurate abstracts. idn live

A template of the Long Abstract has been prepared and can be downloaded following the underlined link. The paper size of the abstract must be 21 x 29.5 cm (A4) with a margin of 3 cm on the top, 2 cm at the bottom, and 2.5 cm on the right and left. The abstract should be formatted using “Times New Roman” font throughout, single-spaced paragraphs, capitalized titles using 14 pt. type, and 12 pt. type for the body text.

Both short and long abstracts may be submitted in exceptional cases as a Microsoft Word “.doc” files. In this case the Secretariat will provide the conversion to a document.pdf of the long abstract, but it can not guarantee a correct conversion. The address for the Secretariat is reported on the web site and below.

2.Poster presentation
There will be TWO poster sessions organized in the afternoon of Tuesday 7th, and Thursday 9th August 2007, respectively. Posters will be on display for two days (Monday and Tuesday, and Wednesday and Thursday, respectively). Please refer to the Final Program for the poster number assigned to you. Your poster board has the same number as your abstract in the Short Abstract Book. A 90-cm width and 120-cm height board will be allotted for each poster display. Preferred poster size is A0. Alternatively presenters may display their material on several smaller sheets. The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters (six feet). Tacks and technical equipment will be available for the hanging of the posters.

The plenary lectures and a selection of keynote lectures will be published in Pure and Applied Chemistry. Other papers will not be peer reviewed and will be printed in the Abstract Book of the Congress and reported on the CD of Long Abstracts.

The conference working language is English.

Overhead projectors and computer-aided projectors (for Microsoft PowerPoint presentations only) will be available. Mac computers will not be available for PowerPoint presentations.

Mac and Linux users should bring their own computer to be connected to the avaiable projectors. Machine specific cabling will not be provided by Organising Secretariat.

6.Young Chemists Programme
To encourage young chemists to participate in this unique congress, the organizers have established two distinct 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. About 50 awards will be made available to qualified candidates as a contribution toward their registration and travel costs.

Applications from candidates under age 40 are welcomed. Scientists from academia, government or industry can submit applications directly to the address below. Award winners will be expected to submit an abstract of a poster or paper to be presented at the Congress. These abstracts will be subject to adjudication as will all other submissions for presentation at the meeting.

There is no specific application form, but applicants are required to provide:
-a letter of application
-a brief CV
-a confirmation of their current status and affiliation
-a publication list
-a letter of support from the appropriate department head, dean, or laboratory supervisor
Estimates of the economy airfare to and from the Congress should also be provided.
