Dr. Weiping Tang would like to announce that the 13th annual Midwest Carbohydrate and Glycobiology Symposium (MCGS) will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, September 22-23 (Friday evening and Saturday), 2017. The deadline for abstract submission is August 25th (Friday), 2017. The deadline for registration is September 8th (Friday), 2017.
In the past 12 years, about 100 people including students, postdocs, and PIs from the mid-west and other areas have attended the conference annually. As a priority, half of the talks are given by students and postdocs. There are multiple awards given to students and postdocs who deliver the best oral presentations and posters. This year, the tradition will continue at UW-Madison!
Click here for the flyer. Please feel free to distribute it. More information on the history of this conference, registration, and abstract submission can be found at the following website (https://pharmacy.wisc.edu/mcgs17/). You can also download the abstract submission template there. Please forward this email to your colleagues and encourage your students and postdocs to attend!
Prof. Jiaoyang Jiang and Prof. Lingjun Li, will co-organize this conference. Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in Madison for another successful symposium.

It is with great pleasure that we invite scientists from around the world to participate in Sialoglyco 2016, the biennial international conference on sialic acid-related research to be held in a dramatic mission-style resort that sits on 24 beautiful beachfront acres in Santa Barbara California. We believe that the location is the perfect setting for networking, stimulating scientific discussions, new and novel ideas for collaborations, and social interaction. We look forward to welcoming you to Santa Barbara California in November.

To researchers who have interest in Glycobiology/Glycoscience:
Please consider attending our annual meeting in wonderful San Francisco! The program is now available at glycobiology.org, along with registration information, and will include several speakers whose research has recently intersected with our field.
We are accepting late-breaking abstracts through September 30. Please inform your students and postdocs!
If anyone is submitting an abstract as a young investigator and wishes to be considered for an award, please also send it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Winners will be selected from all abstracts received by Oct. 9.
Thanks very much for this consideration and see you in San Francisco!

The goal of the 9th CCRC Glycoscience Symposium is to highlight the highly multidisciplinary nature of glycoscience and the importance of combining chemical and biological methodologies to integrate the biological and biomedical functions of glycoconjugates. The Symposium will also cover the development of enabling technologies for glycoscience. The complex heterogeneity of glycoconjugate modifications present challenges in characterization of protein-carbohydrate interactions and details of their biological functions. The Symposium presentations will discuss numerous examples of the contributions of glycoconjugates in animal physiology and pathology as well as emerging technologies to study the details of glycan recognition and function.
Confirmed speakers so far:
Richard Cummings, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta
Peter Seeberger, Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany
Fikri Y. Avci, University of Georgia, Athens
Jeffery W. Kelly Scripps Research Institute, San Diego
Jennifer Kohler, University of Texas, Dallas
Jeffrey D. Esko, University of California, San Diego
Ralph D. Sanderson, University of Alabama-Birmingham
Stephen Withers, University of British Columbia
Linda Baum, University of California-Los Angeles
In addition to the oral presentations, there will be a poster session and tables available for our sponsors to display their corresponding literature and information.

Abstract submission deadline for Glyco XXIII - 23rd Congress of the International Glycoconjugate Organisation is less than two months away (March 31st) and we have posted the preliminary scientific program on the conference web site (www.glyco23.org). I hope that you will share my opinion that we are looking forward to a very comprehensive and exciting meeting. This will clearly be the largest event in the field of glycoscience in 2015 and I hope you will be able to join us and make this conference even better.
The meeting will take place in the beautiful LavLeMeridien hotel in Split, Croatia from September 15th - 20th, 2015. Space for the conference is limited, and to ensure the high quality of the meeting, we will have to limit the number of participants to 650. Thus please register early to avoid disappointment if the conference gets overbooked.
