11th ACGG

Asian Community of Glycoscience and Glycotechnology

Nov. 11-14, 2019 / Hanwha Resort, Haeundae Busan, Korea

Welcome Address

Welcome to the 11th Asian Community of Glycoscience and Glycotechnology Conference.

The 11th ACGG Conference will be held in Busan, a beautiful port city and the second largest city in Korea. We are sure that it is the perfect place to enjoy nice local food and attractions. We have confidence you will find the conference stimulating and rewarding.

When the first ACGG Conference was held in Japan 11 years ago, nobody would imagine that this conference will continue to be held until now. Eleven years ago, there were only six member countries of the ACGG. But the number is now ten and is expected to increase further. We think the strong friendship and passion for glycoscience research in the Asian region has continued to develop our ACGG. We hope that there will be a lively discussion about our research at the beautiful Haeundae Beach. We also want our friendship to become stronger there with more fruitful discussions and further opportunities to conduct practical joint research. These efforts will allow ACGG to take a step forward to contributing to the development of glycoscience worldwide.

We look forward to seeing you soon in Busan and having many research discussions as well as personal friendship.

Thank you for attending!
