The Organising Committee cordially invites you to participate in the 29th International Carbohydrate Symposium in 2018 (ICS 2018), to be held from the 15th to the 19th of July at Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL).
In the morning of the 15th of July, the Young Researcher Workshop will be organized, at FCUL, sponsored by CarboMet, aiming to bring together the young participants of the ICS 2018. On the 14th of July, recent findings in glycochemistry and glycobiology will also be presented at the ICS Iberian Day.
The scientific sessions of this Symposium cover carbohydrate chemistry and analysis, carbohydrate structure and function, carbohydrates in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, natural products, computational sciences and emerging areas of glycosciences, lectured by the world's most prestigious experts.
Contributions are expected in a diversity of topics where carbohydrates play a key role. We welcome presentations in glycosciences and personalized medicine, glycans, inflammation and disease, glycosylation and disease, vaccines, prebiotics, in particular for infants, gut microbiota, carbohydrates and nutrition, carbohydrates and cosmetics, polysaccharide biotechnology, glycoinformatics and carbohydrates in the bio-based economy with emphasis e.g. in glycomaterials and in lignocellulosic biomass valorization.
We wish all participants a fruitful meeting in this beautiful city of Lisbon, embraced by “her” golden sun and the magic Tejo river, running into our billowy sea!
