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. See program details.

The IUPAC General Assembly (GA) is the occasion for meetings of the statutory bodies of the Union, specifically of the Council, Bureau, Division Committees, and Standing Committees. The 51st IUPAC General Assembly will be virtually 9-15 August 2021, while in addition, Council will include an opening session on August 5.

Format for the virtual GA
To avoid all conflicts with the Congress and allow observers to attend as many meetings as they want, meetings of the GA are scheduled a week prior the Congress. Only one meeting at the time is scheduled with no parallel sessions. Each Division/Committee have a 2-hour meeting scheduled as part of the GA. Observers can be member of other committees, delegates from NAOs, or Young observers. Except for the Council, all meetings of the GA will be hosted on the Congress platform.
