General Assembly (GA) is the occasion for meetings of the
statutory bodies of the Union, specifically of the Council, Division Committees, and Standing Committees.
IUPAC General Assembly will be held 31 July - 6 August 2009, in
Glasgow, Scotland, concurrently with the 42nd
IUPAC Congress. This Information Booklet contains information
regarding the arrangements for the General Assembly.
Please note that a number of significant changes have been made in the GA schedule. The Division Committee meetings will be on Friday and Saturday, 31 July and 1 August, while the Standing Committees will meet on Sunday and Monday, 2-3 August. These dates are one day earlier in the week than at recent GAs. The Council meeting will be on Wednesday and Thursday, 5-6 August, rather than on Saturday and Sunday as has been the case for the past few GAs.
The GA venue will be in the Crown Plaza Hotel, adjacent to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.
The IUPAC Congress, held in conjunction with the General Assembly, will take place at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC). Please take a moment to review the Second Circular of the Congress, which can be found on the IUPAC Congress web site <www.iupac2009.org> and includes the preliminary program of the Congress. We would like to encourage you to take advantage of your participation in the IUPAC GA by also attending the Congress. The Organizing Committee has prepared an exciting program with the theme Chemistry Solutions.
look forward to seeing you in Glasgow!
