Dear colleagues, friends and all chemists,

The 19th International Conference on Polysaccharides and Glycoscience (ICPG) will be held at Novotného Lávka 5, Prague, 8th–10th November 2023. The conference is running under the auspice of the Czech Chemical Society and in cooperation with the Department of Carbohydrates and Cereals, UCT Prague.

This 19th conference continues the long tradition of ICPG conferences and will focus on the structural characterization of polysaccharides and their biological activities, technological production, and applications as materials, nanoparticles, and 3D printing. The conference scope will also cover the chemistry of carbohydrates and glycans.

This conference belongs to the activities of the international organization EuCheMS and the organization Chemistry Europe. The proceedings of the 19th ICPG, including abstracts and fulltexts, will be published in printed and online versions in 2023. We encourage young scientists to join the Young Scientific Award with their lectures or posters.

Traditionally we will have opened our 19th ICPG with a glass of wine, and again this conference has a social program. If you are considering participating in the 19th ICPG, we believe you will enjoy it and this conference will have met your expectations as well.

On behalf of the Scientific Committee
Roman Bleha, Jana Čopíková, Evžen Šárka
