The 29th International Carbohydrate Symposium in 2018 (ICS 2018) will be held from the 15th to the 19th of July at Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL). The ICS Iberian Day will be held 14th July.
The scientific sessions of the 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, including 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.
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.
