Three promising young chemists have received funding to travel to international conferences as part of the Canadian National Committee of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (CNC-IUPAC) travel awards program:
Dennis Hore, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Victoria, will use his award to participate in the 19th European Conference on Polymer Spectroscopy in Prague, Czech Republic, July 2013.
Jung Kwonn Oh, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Concordia University, will travel to Pisa, Italy in June 2013 to take part in the Congress of the European Polymer Federation (EPF-2013).
Tim Storr, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry at Simon Fraser University, will use his award to travel to the 16th International Symposium on Relations between Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Catalysis in Sapporo Japan, set to take place in August 2013.
CNC-IUPAC is the only national committee of IUPAC that offers travel awards of this kind. These awards are financed jointly by the CSC’s Gendron Fund and by CNC-IUPAC’s company associates. The deadline for the 2014 awards is October 16, 2013. For more information, visit http://www.cnc-iupac.ca and click on “Awards.”
