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.

Submission is now open for the 11th Symposium of the International Society for Computational Biology Student Council, to be held on the 10th of July, 2015 in Dublin, Ireland, as a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB)! The deadline for abstract submission is 27 April 2015.

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and the Regional Student Groups in Africa (RSGs Africa) are organizing the ISCB-RSGs African Student Symposium to be held on Sunday, March 8th, 2015 on the marge of the ISCB Africa ASBCB Conference on Bioinformatics in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The aim of the symposium is to get a chance to know colleagues working on the computational biology area in order to create networks and to have collaborations and opportunities that can improve bioinformatics research in Africa.

The symposium is mainly designed for students working on the computational biology field that want to share their experience in the field and interact with their colleagues in Africa. The program will include oral presentations and poster session. Students or postdoc are invited to submit abstracts to be presented as an oral presentation or at the poster session during the symposium.

The organizers are looking forward to welcome you all in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
