Abstract:

The Fifth International Congress of Biochemistry was held in Moscow, U.S.S.R., from 10 to 16 August 1961. This Congress was unique in several ways. Besides being the biggest international meeting of biochemists ever, it was the biggest international scientific meeting, and also, perhaps, the largest international meeting of any kind, held in the U.S.S.R. The Congress was attended by over 6000 participants from 58 countries, out of which nearly 4000 were from outside the Soviet Union. The largest delegations were from the U.S.S.R., the U.S.A., Great Britain, France, Romania, Italy, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Sweden and Japan; more than 75 per cent of the participants were from these 10 countries. In recent years, at no other occasion have there been as many foreigners in the Soviet Union at any one time as were present at the Congress. The Congress, which is held once every three years, was organized by the U.S.S.R. Biochemical Society (which has close to 2000 members), under the auspices of the International Union of Biochemistry.
