Call for AbstractsEuroCarb 17
aims to introduce the latest and emerging trends in all aspects of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, technology and medical applications of carbohydrates.
We welcome contributions for oral and poster presentations, and especially encourage young researchers from academia and industry to join and present their work. The scientific committee will leave open slots to be assigned to young scientists. We invite you to take this opportunity to contribute to and benefit from a highly stimulating international scientific meeting.
