ISCB Student Council: Next Generation Computational Biologists

Welcome to the ISCB Student Council, the student organization of the International Society for Computational Biology.

Our mission is to promote the development of the next generation of computational biologists. We achieve our goal through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft-skills training, educational resources and career advice, while attempting to influence policy processes affecting science and education. The Student Council website is a resource for the global computational biology student community and we allow you to get in touch with your peers and to find out about events and initiatives for computational biology students - no matter where in the world you are. If you have questions or comments don't hesitate to contact us.

In July 2014 the International Society for Computational Biology Student Council celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over its ten years of operation, the Student Council has grown to over 2000 members thanks, in a large part, to its constituent of innovative and enthusiastic volunteers. These volunteers have worked hard to uphold the Student Council’s mission of “promoting the development of the next generation of computational biologists”. While many of the volunteers have not received any direct recognition for their contributions, each and every one of the Student Council members will attest that the reward lies in the skills and experience gained in being part of organising an event or activity.

However, to ensure that both the efforts of these student volunteers don't go unnoticed, and that their collective experiences could be shared with others, the Student Council put together a series of article documenting various aspects of the Student Council initiatives that PLOS Computational Biology is publishing in conjunction with ISCB. Many of the articles are now published and have been launched as a PLOS Collection.

Read more about the 'Stories from the road' article series and how it was put together on the PLOS blogs!

We would like to thank to all delegates and people who helped us to organize the 2nd LA-SCS. It was an amazing experience, with excellent student talks and keynotes speakers. We really ejoyed your presence in Buenos Aires.

Here you have a link with the booklet: LINK

We hope to see you in the next Student Council Simposium in Prague. More information will be availiable soon...

The 2nd LA-SCS date is comming. As a reminder, when preparing accepted posters please note that your poster should not exceed the following dimensions: 1m wide x 1.20m high. Additionally, oral talks should not exceed 15 minutes (with questions) and must be in english.

The symposium will be held in the auditorium of IIB ("Instituto de investigaciones Biotecnológicas") in the National University of San Martin, Campus Miguelete, Buenos Aires. We update the information about transportation and how to reach the venue: http://lascs2016.iscbsc.org/lascs2016-venue

We're looking forward to see you soon in Buenos Aires..
