We hope that the above papers will be the focus of interesting 
real-time and hypermail discussion.

Many more abstracts have been submitted across the sixteen sections 
of the conference. However, to be able to access the text of any 
EGC-2 presentations you must be registered. Please refer to

EGC-2 is sponsored by Chapman and Hall, publishers of the 
Glycoconjugate Journal (through which some EGC-2 papers will be 
published), and Oxford GlycoSystems.
