*Issue cover image: This year the 48th International Chemistry Olympiad took place in Tbilisi, Georgia in July and the planning of that IChO was extraordinary—see why page 4. This issue cover, designed by Mariam Elizbarashvili, illustrates the IChO journey, which started in 1968 in Prague (Czechslovakia). It shows the sequence of all the flags of the countries that have hosted the event. Along with a view of Old Tbilisi are pictures of the Closing ceremony (with Professor Natalia Tarasova and Professor Elizbar Elizbarashvili awarding the gold medals) and Saba Tavdgiridze (bottom left), the first bronze medalist of the Georgian team. In 2017, IChO will rendez-vous in Thailand; in 2018 the Olympiad will return to Prague and Bratislava for the IChO 50th anniversary.
