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.

Check us out on YouTube!

You can submit an abstract for oral and/or poster presentations at SCS 2017 at the following link.

You can also apply for a travel fellowship, however, you need to submit an abstract first to become eligible. Your abstract number will be required when submitting your travel fellowship application.

Abstract calls will close on May 14, 2017.

We are proud to announce the second keynote speaker at the 2017 Student Council Symposium will be Dr. Johannes Söding from the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry. More information about the keynotes biographies and talks can be found on the keynotes page
