Welcome to Eurocarb 21 the leading international symposium in Glycosciences July 09 to 13, 2023, in Paris, France

Under the auspices of the European Carbohydrate Organization, our biennial symposium Eurocarb will be back in 2023 for its 21st edition at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris, France. This exceptional and historical venue located near the Seine river and less than 25 min by foot from the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre.

The scientific and social programs combined to the exceptional setting of the Maison de la Chimie, offering various places to meet and mingle including a private garden, will allow Eurocarb 21 to be the forum for discussions and networking we like. Even if the barrier measures and restrictions to limit SARS-CoV-2 spreading still prevail next July, Eurocarb 21 will allow bringing together physically more than 700 glycomaniacs, from both academia and industry and from PhD students to recognized group leaders. Whether you are a recognized group leader, starting an independent research, post-doctoral researcher or young doctoral fellow, Eurocarb 21 will offer you many formats to communicate your latest results: 11 plenary and 28 keynote lectures, 136 oral and 48 flash communications, up to 500 poster presentations….

Be inspired, share and develop ideas in all aspects of Glycosciences

As regular participants know: Eurocarb represents a unique occasion to be inspired, share and develop ideas on the challenges and future trends in carbohydrate-related scientific disciplines and applied technologies. To fulfill this aim, we are building for Eurocarb 21 a high-level scientific program with speakers from academia and industry from all over the world and topics covering all aspects of Glycosciences :

  • Glycochemistry: new reactions involving sugars, glycosylation methodologies and mechanisms, carbohydrate feedstock as renewable resources…
  • Synthesis of carbohydrates, glycoconjugates, glycan-based biomaterials: chemical, enzymatic, chemoenzymatic or synthetic biology approaches…
  • Chemical (glyco)Biology and Glycomics: bioorthogonal chemistry, metabolic labeling, activity-based probes, functional glycomics, glycan arrays…
  • Carbohydrate structures, dynamics and interactions: advanced analytical and structural tools, thermodynamic and kinetics of glycans interactions, integrative databases, computational methods…
  • Glycobiology, Glycobiochemistry: carbohydrate active enzymes, cellular and molecular biology of glycans, glycomicrobiology and metagenomics…
  • Applied Glycosciences from bench to bedside, for nutrition and biotechnology: glycans in health and disease (cancer, immunity, infectious diseases, vaccines, rare diseases…), in food and material sciences…

Eurocarb 2023 edition will offer opportunities to :

  • Consolidate the interplay and reinforce interactions :
    • Between disciplines, with duo interdisciplinary keynote lectures and oral communications, in which two speakers with complementary expertise will be allotted double time to present together the results of interdisciplinary researches.
    • Between academia and socio-economic players to burst innovative technologies into application by giving the floor to decision makers, chief executive officers, chief scientific officers from industry, biotech, start-up and contract research organizations.
  • Shed light on career opportunities in Glycosciences and Glycomics for young researcher with :
    • The 2cd EuroCarb Young Researcher Workshop: “How to succeed in academic research and become a good group leader”.
    • Round tables and speed-dating with academic group leaders and socio-economic players to help starting or building a career.

EUROCARB is a reference meeting for Glycosciences, nicely combining chemistry and biology and inspiring exchange of ideas and collaborations. But also the social gathering strengthens the community and welcomes new and young members. An alive community always evolving to new expectations. Awaiting for Paris 2021.
