Abstracts are now being gathered for technical presentations at the upcoming XXIX Congress of the IULTCS, which will be held jointly with the 103rd Annual Meeting of the American Leather Chemists Association in Washington, DC, USA, on June 20-24, 2007. The formal deadline for receipt of abstracts was October 1, 2006, but the organisers will consider late submissions on a space-available basis. Submitters will be notified of their selection in November and will be asked to submit a proceedings article on their talk by March for distribution at the Washington meeting.

The Call for Papers and the registration form for the Congress are available on the IULTCS website: [http://www.iultcs.org/usa.asp]

These materials as well as the Congress brochure may be found on the ALCA website: [http://www.leatherchemists.org/2007_congress.asp]
