Conjoint Meetings of the San Diego Glycobiology Symposium and the NHLBI Programs of Excellence in Glycoscience San Diego, CA, USA March 9–10 and March 10–11, 2018 The 21st Annual San Diego Glycobiology Symposium (SDGS) and the conjoint NHLBI Programs of Excellence in Glycoscience (PEG) Meeting will take place at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in San Diego, California. The San Diego Glycobiology symposium is organized by the UC San Diego Glycobiology Research and Training Center (GRTC). This annual symposium brings together researchers from the University of California and other regional institutions with a primary or major interest in Glycobiology. The objectives are to exchange information on the latest advances in the field, and to promote interactions between members of these laboratories among other attendees from academia, biotechnology and the pharmaceutical industry. To maximize interactions the setting will be informal and we encourage non-GRTC scientists to attend the meeting. The 2018 SDGS is unique as it is conjoint with the NHLBI PEG Meeting. The PEG program is a consortium of six NHLBI program project grants that run unique programs but share activities to attain greater efficiency and promote the field of glycosciences. The PEG meeting is designed to provide an opportunity for all PEG Program members to come together informally in a collaborative environment to share their latest discoveries, network with other investigators, and create new partnerships. Leaders and Advisors of the PEG have been invited to speak at the SDGS, providing a unique opportunity to bring together many excellent speakers for the symposium. Confirmed speakers for the 21st Annual San Diego Glycobiology Symposium include: Linda Baum, UC Los Angeles Richard Cummings, Harvard Michael Demetriou, UC San Diego Umesh Desai, Virginia Commonwealth University Patti Dickson, UC Los Angeles Jeffrey Esko, UC San Diego Marilyn Etzler, UC Davis Kamil Godula, UC San Diego Philip Gordts, UC San Diego Gerald Hart, Johns Hopkins University Vincent Hascall, Cleveland Clinic Nate Lewis, UC San Diego Jamey Marth, UC Santa Barbara / Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute Alyssa Panitch, UC Davis James Paulson, The Scripps Research Institute Matthew Robert Pratt, University of Southern California Robert Sackstein, Harvard Ronald Schnaar, Johns Hopkins University Christina Sigurdson, UC San Diego Thomas Stossel, Harvard Ajit Varki, UC San Diego Yu Yamaguchi, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute Each speaker will provide an overview of ongoing research in her/his laboratory. In addition to oral presentations, there will be a poster session open to anyone who wishes to present one. To ensure the informal setting, all discussions and presentations are considered off record. For further information, E-mail: sdgs@ucsd.edu. Benzon Symposium No. 64: GLYCOTHERAPEUTICS - EMERGING ROLES OF GLYCANS IN MEDICINECopenhagen, August 27-30, 2018 Organizing committee: Henrik Clausen, Hans H. Wedell, Steffen Thiel, James Paulson, Nico Callewaert, Finn Cilius Nielsen and Hans Bräuner-Osbrone Venue: Hotel Skt Petri, Krystalgade 22, 1172 Copenhagen The Benzon Symposia are international conferences on front line research in medical, pharmaceutical, and related sciences funded by the Alfred Benzon Foundation. The 64th Benzon Symposium on Glycotherapeutics – Emerging Roles of Glycans in Medicine will bring together the world’s leading scientists working on complex carbohydrates with clear translational drug and therapeutic perspectives. The symposium will encompass as many aspects of glycans and therapeutic applications as possible to stimulate new ideas, interactions and synergies, and to foster further excitement and developments in this field. We hope to create an intense and interactive environment for both experienced and young scientists with a mixture of invited and selected presentations from participants. Sessions: GlcNAcylation & diseases Congenital diseases of glycosylation & therapeutic options Immunology & therapeutic options Glycome & Microbiome Engineering glycosylation in cells Glyco-therapeutics Platform technologies for advancing glyco-drugs Symposium No. 64 will feature state-of-the art lectures by 24world-leading scientists,who have made groundbreaking contributions to the field of glycoscience and glycotherapeutics.The Benzon Symposium will further include 16 oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts for poster presentations.

GlycoT 2018 is organized by Fudan University and Ocean University of China. The symposium will focus on the structure and function of glycosyltransferase and glycan, with emphasis on the interplay between glycan and glycoprotein biosynthesis, integrating the relationship between structure and function, as it relates to cell recognition, immunity, neuroscience, and the role glycans play in microbiome interactions. It also provides a unique platform to present the newest developments in the field of glycoengineering, glycotechnology, glycoinformiatics and glycan-based drug development and biomarker discovery. GlycoT 2018 is provisionally to be held at Seaview Garden Hotel, just beside the beach in Qingdao, which is an excellent tourist city, also an important transportation hub and a seaport in east China. We would like to extend our sincere invitation to all friends and colleagues from all over the world to get together in Qingdao for scientific exchange of the most recent and exciting research progresses, which will be a scientifically exciting conference. We wish you all have a wonderful time in Qingdao to experience the local culture and enjoy the delicious foods. The deadline for early bird registration is March 31st, 2018, and we accept abstract submission till April 30th, 2018. Confirmed speakers for the GlycoT 2018 include: Gerald W. Hart (Johns Hopkins University, USA) James W.
