Annual Conference


The first ACGG conference was held in 2009 in Tsukuba, Japan, with participants from five countries and regions: India, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Japan. Since then, the annual conferences have been held under the effort of each host country to share the various information and resources as well as the latest achievements of member countries for advancement of Asian glycoscience. The members of ACGG are increasing. The ACGG Conference always welcomes new participants from many countries and regions of Asia.
