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.

We are pleased to announce that the call is now open for the submission of abstracts to the 11th ISCB Student Council Symposium, to be held on the 10 of July 2015 in Dublin, Ireland, as a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB).

The Student Council Symposium is a forum for students, post docs, and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience of young scientists, build a network within the computational biology community and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters exchange of ideas and knowledge.

We encourage you to submit an abstract to showcase your work at the Symposium’s poster session. As the central part of our symposium, 12 abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation. Awards will be given to outstanding posters and presentations. Travel fellowships will be available and candidates with accepted abstracts will be invited to apply.
