Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. The conference must be located in a country represented in IUPAC by a National Adhering Organization. See program details.

A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?

  • This event has passed.

Reducing the gender gap is a major challenge for the whole scientific community, in developed as well as developing countries, and concerns everyone, men and women. The project has concentrated its effort on three main tasks: the Joint Global Survey with 30000 respondents (male and female) in more than 130 countries using 8 languages, the Joint Study on Publication Patterns analysing comprehensive metadata sources of publications of more than 500000 scientists since 1970, a Database of Good Practices for girls and young women, parents, and organizations.  The aim of the Conference is to present its results and formulate recommendations.

You are kindly invited to register at the final meeting of the Gender Gap in Science Project taking place at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste on 4-8 November 2019.
