IUPAP: The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics
Before completing this form, please read the IUPAP policies for the sponsorship of IUPAP conferences.
A) Ongoing series: Briefly describe the scope of the conference. There should be a clear need for the proposed conference. A statement should be given why the series should be continued. Please email a programme and list of speakers from one or more recent conferences to the IUPAP secretariat
New conference: Bearing in mind that the proliferation of conferences is of general concern, describe below the particular reason for holding this conference. Its relationship to existing conferences should also be given.
B) The composition of Advisory and Program Commitees should give evidence of scientific quality, international characer and diversity. It is expected that all IUPAP sponsored conferences include women as members of their program committees.
Please provide a list of the program committee with evidence that women are included. Enter one committee member per line and indicate women members with an * after their name.
C. Acceptance of papers should be based on a refereeing system which assures a level comparable with that of papers in regular journals. Every effort should be made to have the proceedings of the conference published in order to make them widely and easily available to the scientific community. Publication of proceedings as a special issue of a regular journal or on the world wide web is encouraged.
Please indicate how this conference is responsive to these issues.
D. IUPAP policy calls for adequate representation of applied aspects wherever appropriate, and – at general conferences – the encouragement of a Public Lecture.
