• The biennial SialoGlyco meeting 2024 provides a venue for around 150 international researchers to exchange ideas and explore the chemistry and biology of sialic acid. This meeting has been held around the world for 30 years including in Japan, USA, Australia, Taiwan and Scotland. It is being held for the second time in France and the very ﬁrst time in Lille.
• SialoGlyco 2024 is organized by the Unité de Glycobiologie Structurale et Fonctionnelle, a long-standing internationally recognized research centre (since 1958) in the biology and chemistry of sugars. For decades, it participated to the development of the wet biological and chemical methods for the study of complex sugar.
• The plenary lectures will be given by renowned international experts in the chemistry, biochemistry and biology of sialic acids, while giving young researchers from the region and abroad the opportunity to showcase their research.
