Call for Abstracts

EuroCarb 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.

Abstracts submission is closed


The official language of EuroCarb17 is English.

3. Glycobiology (The role and function of carbohydrates in biological systems, glycomics, systems glycobiology, and bioinformatics)
4. Glycomedicine (Carbohydrates in health and medicine: Carbohydrate-based drug targets, Carbohydrate-based vaccines and drugs, the role of carbohydrates in pathogenesis and disease)
5. Glycobiotechnology (Bio-fuels, carbohydrate-based materials and nanomaterials, carbohydrates in food technology)

Abstract Title
