The event covers carbohydrate chemistry and analysis, carbohydrate structure and function, carbohydrates in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, natural products, computational sciences, and emerging areas of glycosciences.

Contributions are expected in a diversity of topics, including glycosciences and personalized medicine, glycans, inflammation and disease, glycosylation and disease, vaccines, prebiotics, gut microbiota, carbohydrates and nutrition, carbohydrates and cosmetics, polysaccharide biotechnology, glycoinformatics, and carbohydrates in the bio-based economy with an emphasis, e.g., on glycomaterials and lignocellulosic biomass valorization.
