Scientific Congresses in 1931


    DURING the summer of this year five important scientific gatherings will take place in London, all of which will be of an international character. The first of these will be the International Congress of the History of Science and Technology; the second the jubilee celebrations of the Society of Chemical Industry; the third the International Illumination Congress; and the fourth and fifth the centenary celebrations of the discovery by Faraday of electromagnetic induction and the centenary meetings of the British Association. Though the programme of the International Illumination Congress includes meetings at Glasgow, Edinburgh, Sheffield, Birmingham, and Cambridge, the delegates will meet in London before visiting the provinces, while the meetings of the other bodies will be held entirely in London.
