XVIth International Symposium on Glycoconjugates

The Hague, The Netherlands
August 19-24,2001

Glyco XVI will take place on August 19-24, 2001, in the Netherlands
Congress Center in The Hague, The Netherlands. The Hague, uniquely situated
on the North Sea coast, has a direct rail connection with Amsterdam
International Airport, and can also be reached easily from all parts of
Europe by train and by car.

Scientific program
The scientific program will be designed to cover recent progress in the
wide spectrum of glycoconjugate research, including glycobiochemistry,
glycobiology, glycochemistry, glycoimmunology, and glycotechnology, ranging
from parasites to men and from microbes to plants. It will include plenary
lectures, invited lectures in parallel thematic sessions, and free
communications presented orally in parallel sessions or as posters. Posters
will be on display from Monday through Thursday during the symposium week.

Scientific topics
A series of numbered scientific topics have been selected to help the
Scientific Program Committee to design the final program of the Symposium.
Participants are requested to select up to three numbers (in priority
sequence) that fit the content of their abstract best.

1.	Analytical methods in glycoscience
2.	Carbohydrate-protein and carbohydrate-carbohydrate interactions
3.	Cellular adhesion / receptors / transmembrane signaling
4.	Developmental glycobiology
5.	Functional role of glycans
