An event that brings like-minded researchers, leaders and innovators across Canada.

The Canadian Glycomics Symposium is organized by the Canadian Glycomics Network (GlycoNet), a national research network harnessing the power of glycomics to deliver health solutions and improve the quality of life of Canadians.

Every year, the Canadian Glyomics Symposium brings together over 200 researchers and industry leaders across Canada to showcase the latest innovations and discuss trending topics in glycomics. The Symposium is an exclusive event to exchange ideas and meet potential collaborators, partners, and customers.

Join us next May in Banff for the 2020 Canadian Glycomics Symposium at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. This is your opportunity to connect with the glycomics community, grow your network, discover new research frontiers, and advance your career.

Every moment is a networking opportunity.

From sightseeing around the town of Banff to having dinner in the lounge or waiting for the morning keynote session, every moment is a networking opportunity. During the three days of the Symposium, there are ample designated networking sessions. You can meet scientists face-to-face from all over Canada, have plenty of opportunities to get inspired, and you may find your next project partner or collaborator from the crowd.
