The last international congress had been organized in 1912 and it would take until 1934 for the next one to take place in Madrid. Whereas only delegates of the countries adhering to the IUPAC where welcome at the annual, and later biannual, conferences, admission to the scientific congress was open to anyone interested in the developments within chemistry.
