Volume 2 No. 9 (September 1, 2002)

Past issues are posted on the IUGG Web site. Please forward this message to those who will benefit from the information. Your comments are welcome.
1. Last Call - nominations for IUGG Officials due 30 September
The deadline to submit nominations for a new IUGG Bureau (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and 3 Members) and Finance Committee (5 members) is September 30. Instructions for nominations are posted on the IUGG Web site (http://www.IUGG.org), and have been mailed to all IUGG officers and Adhering Bodies. The Nominations Committee will prepare a slate of candidates and the new officers will be elected by the IUGG Council in Sapporo at the 2003 General Assembly.
Please submit nominations to Prof. Dr. Klaus Peter Schwarz.
2. Deadline reminder for Bids for the 2007 IUGG General Assembly
The Call for Invitations to host the 2007 General Assembly was issued in September 2001. Bids are now being accepted and must be received by December 31, 2002. As a point of interest, the 2007 Assembly will mark the 50th Anniversary of the International Geophysical Year, and suitable celebrations are being planned. The guidelines for a proposal are posted on the IUGG website, or can be received directly from the IUGG Secretariat. The IUGG Council, at their 2003 meeting in Sapporo, will make the final selection.
3. Updates needed for the 2003 IUGG Yearbook
Corrections and updates to the information contained in the IUGG Yearbook are now in progress in preparation for the 2003 Yearbook. The IUGG Secretariat will be contacting all Adhering Bodies, National Committees, and Association Secretaries-General within the next few weeks in order to confirm changes already received, and to request other additions and corrections. Updates are needed by November 28.
4. Dr. A.J. Smith is the IUGG representative to the URSI General Assembly in Maastricht, Netherlands
The Union Radio Scientifique Internationale (URSI) invited IUGG to send a delegate to the opening ceremony of their General Assembly in Maastricht, The Netherlands, Aug 17-24, 2002. President Kono appointed Dr. A.J. Smith (U.K.), chair of the joint IAGA/URSI Working Group on VLF/ELF Remote Sensing of the Ionosphere and Magnetosphere, to represent IUGG.
5. First Business Meeting of EMSEV (Electromagnetic Studies of Earthquakes and Volcanoes) to be held September 6
EMSEV is a new Inter-Associations working group jointly organized by the International Associations of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), and Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). The Chair of EMSEV is Dr. S. Uyeda (Japan). Approved by the IUGG Executive Meeting in 2001 and jointly funded by contributions from each of the sponsoring Associations, EMSEV will hold its first business meeting on Sept. 6, in Moscow, Russia, just after the 3rd International Workshop on Magnetic, Electric and Electromagnetic Methods in Seismology and Volcanology. The meeting is open to anybody interested.
