the International Society for the Philosophy of Chemistry
1. The objectives of the Society are to promote the philosophy of chemistry, and provide a forum for the participation of interested persons. Specifically, it will organise regular international conferences and promote publications in the field. The Society's journal is Foundations of Chemistry.
2. At official ISPC conferences, there will be scheduled a 'Business Meeting', to discuss the organization of the next conference and any other business relevant to the Society.
3. An Executive Committee will implement the day to day running of the Society. The term is three years, but can be changed by the majority of votes of those members present at a 'Business Meeting'.
4. The Constitution can be amended by a vote of the members of the Society. Reasonable efforts will be made to contact all members in ample time for them to be informed. 75% of returned votes will be sufficient.
In Spring, 2003, the membership, by means of an e-mail ballot, overwhelmingly approved institution of the office of Honorary President of the ISPC, with a renewable term of three years, but without executive or administrative responsibilities.
