- INVITATION -
 
On behalf of the New Swiss Chemical Society and the Organizing Committee, we
cordially invite you to participate in the 36th IUPAC Congress to be held in
Geneva, Switzerland, during the week Sunday, 17th August-Friday, 22nd August
1997.
 
It  is a great honor for us to host this prestigious Congress which was held
only once before in Switzerland (Zurich, 1955). The Congress will provide  a
unique  opportunity  for academic and industrial chemists  from  around  the
world  to exchange ideas, expertise and experience on topics related to  the
theme Frontiers in Chemistry, New Perspectives for the 2000s. The aim of the
organizers  is to bring together distinguished experts not only  to  present
their  work but to discuss the major scientific and technological challenges
facing chemistry in the next millennium.
 
The  scientific program will consist of plenary lectures and  five  parallel
streams  of  contributed  lectures, each session beginning  with  a  keynote
lecture  given by an acknowledged expert in the relevant field. In addition,
ample time will be available for poster sessions.
 
Geneva situated on the edge of the biggest lake in Europe, surrounded  by  a
scenic  countryside, and close to the snow-capped Mont Blanc  range,  offers
many  opportunities  for  excursions and recreation  which  will  appeal  to
tourists of all ages.
 
We  extend  a  warm  invitation to all scientists  to  participate  in  this
Congress and we look forward to seeing you in Geneva in 1997 !
 
 
    Professor Jacques Weber
    Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 36th IUPAC Congress
 
and Professor Alexander von Zelewsky
    President of the New Swiss Chemical Society
