IUPAC 2011 - ACS Challenge Grant Program

2011 IUPAC World Congress, San Juan, Puerto Rico To help support the Colegio de Quimicos de Puerto Rico in its bid to host the IUPAC 2011 World Congress, in 2007 the American Chemical Society (ACS) Board of Directors approved funding in the form of challenge grants to help contribute scientific content to the event which takes place July 30 ? August 7, 2011 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This is the first time an IUPAC World Congress will have been held in Latin America.

The IUPAC 2011 scientific organizing committee and its challenge grant review panel selected three challenge grant applications to receive support to organize symposia for the 2011 IUPAC World Congress.

“Physical-chemical techniques to solve environmental challenges” : Dr. Laura L. McConnell, Research Chemist, USDA-ARS.
“Challenges for Materials Chemistry in the 21st Century” : Dr. Leonard V. Interrante, Chair, IUPAC Interdivisional Subcommittee on Materials Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Rensselear Polytechnic Institute.
“Are women still underrepresented in science?” : Dr. Ingrid Montes, Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras.

The 2011 IUPAC World Congress in Puerto Rico is a cornerstone event of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry, proclaimed by the United Nations.
