The 25th International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS2010) will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from 1–6 August 2010. The symposium is one of the premier events in carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry, biennially organized under the auspices of the International Carbohydrate Organization. The 2010 event will mark the 50th anniversary of the first meeting held in 1960 in Gif-sur-Yvette, France.
Reflecting rapid expansion of the field, the scope of the symposium will be broad. It will cover diverse aspects of glycosciences, which include chemical and enzymatic synthesis, chemical biology, glycobiology, therapeutics, structural biology, and industrial applications. ICS2010 will cover the following fields of glycosciences:
- Synthesis and Reactions
- Chemical Biology
- Analytical Methods
- Structural Biology
- Materials and Biotechnology
- Industrial Applications
The symposium will take place in the conveniently located Makuhari Messe, which is easily accessible from Narita International Airport. Accommodation at hotels in Makuhari area will be arranged, so that most of the participants can stay within walking distance of the symposium venue.
Symposium organizers are planning a number of activities, including a reception, excursions to various sites around Tokyo, and a symposium banquet to promote mutual friendship and exchange of ideas.
The symposium chair is Tomoya Ogawa, RIKEN Yokohama Institute, and the vice chair is Yukishige Ito, RIKEN Advanced Science Institute.
