Dear colleagues, scientists, researchers, friends and all chemists,

The 20th anniversary International Conference on Polysaccharides and Glycoscience (ICPG) will be held at Novotného lávka 5, from 13 to 15 November 2024.

The conference is organised under the auspices of the Czech Chemical Society and cooperation with the Department of Carbohydrates and Cereals, UCT Prague.

This 20th Conference continues in the very long tradition of ICPG conferences and will be focused on the structural characterisation of polysaccharides and their biological activities, technological production, and applications as materials, drug delivery systems, and in circulary economy. Attention will also be paid to carbohydrate and glycan chemistry.

This conference belongs to the activities of the international organisation EuCheMS and the organisation Chemistry Europe.

Proceedings of the 20th ICPG will include abstracts and fulltexts and will be published in the printed and online versions in the year 2024. We encourage young scientists to join the Young Scientific Award with their lectures or posters.

Traditionally, we will have opened our 20th ICPG with a glass of wine, and this conference will have a social programme again.

If you are considering participating in the 20th ICPG, we believe that you will have enjoyed it and that this conference will have met your expectations as well.
