On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to welcome you to Glyco XXIV, the 24th International Symposium on Glyconjugates that will take place from August 27th to September 1st, 2017 in Jeju, South Korea. It is a great pleasure to be hosting the Glyco XXIV in the wonderful Jeju Island, which was designated as Biosphere Reserve in 2002, World Natural Heritage in 2007 and Global Geoparks Network in 2010, earning 3 major UNESCO designations in natural sciences; two Ramsar-designated wetlands; one of the world's New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2012. We believe that the symposium will give a platform to broaden knowledge, exchange ideas and technologies on topics in glycoconjugates and glycans and serve as opportunities for networking among participants.
The symposium will be held at the International Convention Center (ICC) Jeju with its five halls, 17 meeting rooms, and several other facilities, can accommodate more than 5,000 people, which is located in the Jungmun Tourist Complex with the cobalt-blue Northern Pacific stretching on the south and towering majestic Mt. Hallasan in the north. In addition, Jeju provides visa-free entry for citizens of more than 180 countries as a free economic zone.
We are convinced that this conference will provide participants with the most updated information on the latest scientific advancements and valuable opportunities to exchange the ideas and launch future collaborations.
I look forward to meeting you at the 24th International Symposium on Glyconjugates in Jeju Island, Korea, 2017.
