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 43rd IUPAC General Assembly will be held 13-21 August 2005, in Beijing, China, concurrently with the 40th IUPAC Congress. The Information Booklet contains information regarding the arrangements for the General Assembly.

The GA site will be the Beijing International Convention Center (BICC). The BICC is located at No.8 Beichendong Road, Chaoyang District. The BICC is one of China's biggest facilities specifically designed for conferences and exhibitions, with an area of over 68 thousand square meters. It is an eight-floor building with two underground floors, comprising 50 conference halls and meeting rooms equipped to serve a wide variety of purposes from 10 up to 2500 people, as well as indoor exhibition halls to accommodate as many as 300 standard exhibition booths and dozens of offices. All buildings are located in a beautiful garden.

Please take a moment to also review the Congress 2nd Circular, which includes the Congress preliminary program, map, pre and post Congress tour options, and visas information. The Chinese Chemical Society has arranged an impressive program on the theme of Innovation in Chemistry.

Looking forward to seeing you in Beijing!

The Information Booklet has been e-mailed (not mailed) to all expected participants on 15 November 2004. Please do contact the Secretariat if you have not received this e-mail and yet expect to participate in the GA.
