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.
