The 2008 Plant Polysaccharide Workshop
The 2008 Plant Polysaccharide Workshop (PPW2008) was held 3-5 August 2008 in Sigtuna, Sweden. PPW2008 was co-organised by Vincent Bulone and Harry Brumer as a satellite meeting of the 24th International Carbohydrate Symposium held in Oslo, Norway, 27 July - 1 August 2008.
The website for PPW2008 is available online here for historical purposes. The site includes a history of the PPW by Professor Bruce Stone, who founded of the Workshop in 1980. Bruce sadly passed away just months before PPW2008, which was held in his honor.
For 2010, the organisation of the Workshop has been taken over by the Japanese Society of Applied Glycoscience and the Workshop has been renamed as the "Plant Polysaccharide and Applied Glycoscience Workshop (PPAGW)."
