|Cost||The registration fee is $100 for delegates and $25 for students
|Description||Nature of the Meeting: A two-day, satellite meeting of the 2014 CSC Conference in Vancouver, focused on glycoscience. This will be a special joint meeting with colleagues from Asia.
Rationale: There is much activity in the area of glycoscience in Asian countries and Canadian colleagues would profit greatly from interaction with their Asian counterparts. This exchange is not always possible because of the cost of travel to international conferences. The 2014 CSC Conference in Vancouver provides an ideal opportunity for exchange because Vancouver is the gateway to Asia. We expect that several international guests will also attend the CSC Conference. The meeting will feature speakers who are in the early to middle stage of their career.
