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. 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 may 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.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 28 February 2007.
(deadline extended from Jan 31 to Feb 28 - update Jan 24)
Applications should be sent to:
Prof. Roberto Gobetto
Dept. of IFM Chemistry
Via P. Giuria 7
