The Second Girton Working Conference on the Chemistry and Application
of Amorphous Carbohydrates

Applicants are now invited for participation in The Second Girton
Working Conference on the Chemistry and Application of Amorphous
Carbohydrates which will take place on 25-27 September 1996. The
conference will be open, but guaranteed places are limited and will be
offered to the first 100 applicants. 

The programme will feature: 

*five state-of-the-science overview lectures by recognised leaders; 
*structured discussion sessions, including short oral presentations;
small           group workshops on specialised topics can be arranged; 
*up to twenty posters, selected for their relevance to the chosen
discussion topics. 

Programme topics will be chosen from suggestions by registered
participants and will include some or all of the following: 

*description of structure in amorphous carbohydrate compositions; 
*physical and chemical changes within amorphous carbohydrates; 
*significance of thermal transitions, their measurements with special
emphasis on thermal and mechanical techniques; 
*dynamics within vitreous carbohydrates; 
*effects of residual moisture an long term product stability; 
*ternary and multicomponent solid solutions including carbohydrates; 
*impact of amorphous carbohydrate properties on product/process
development. 

The conference will be fully residential beginning with lunch on 25
September, running until 16.00 hr on the 27 September.
