Please kindly note that the 1st of June 2016 is the due date for the submission of IUPAP sponsorship application forms for conferences that will be held anytime in 2017 (i.e. anytime between 1 January and 31 December 2017). All conference organizers are to be informed that the deadline is the above said. They are required to approach the respective commissions to seek their approval to submit their application to request for sponsorship funding from IUPAP under the commission. All are required to familiarise themselves with the conference sponsorship rules and guidelines which are accessible on the IUPAP weblink: http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-policies/
All (potential applicants and/or conference organizers) are kindly reminded to submit online applications (on or) before 1 June 2016 deadline.
Ref 2: 2015 IUPAP FUNDED CONFERENCE REPORTS
All commission chairs are kindly requested, to facilitate online completion and submission of mandatory IUPAP conference reports for all 2015 Conferences that were sponsored (by IUPAP) under your commission. The conference report form can be accessed on the following IUPAP weblink: http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-report-form/
Please kindly note that without this report it is not possible for the IUPAP Council to reliably asses the successes or shortcomings of the sponsored conference event, and even more difficult to recommend future support in the case of conference series.
Please do impress on all your conference organizers that when completing the conference report, special attention should be paid to the actual number of attendees, number of women who have participated, and the number of women who have given invited papers at the conference.
Your anticipated co-operation is fully appreciated in advance.
