Conference politics (split from conference invitation post)

Recommended Posts

I suspect that we won't hear from Vincent Lee again but, just in case,

Has this been addressed yet?

 

"Scientists are being urged to boycott a major international chemistry conference after its preliminary list of invited speakers and chairs featured no women."

Dear Colleagues,
The 15th International Congress of Quantum Chemistry (ICQC) will take place in Beijing, June 8-13, 2015. The registration will be opened by Oct 1, 2014.

Moderator Note

Split from http://www.scienceforums.net/topic/83110-conferences-and-science-events-links/page-3?p=827967#entry827967 because this discussion (IMO an important topic) should be separate from the thread of conference links.

 

If someone can think of a better thread title I'm happy to modify it

 

I do notice one obvious female name on the current list (Sharon Hammes-Schiffer (UIUC)), so something has changed, even if by the minimal amount possible.

 

(including quote in case that induces Vincent Lee to notice the thread and comment on this, should he return)
