  • Get BLASTed at a trendy pub in Naschmark
  • Join us for dinner at 510 Naschmarkt

Art and Science Exhibition

This is the fourth year of our Art & Science exhibition. All interested ISMB/ECCB 2011 delegates are invited to submit images or videos that have been produced in the course of research or using a scientific method to this exhibition.

Student Council Social HQ

8:00 pm – whenever, at a riverside pub in Donauiseln
Do you feel like science is just so much easier while drinking a beer (or a coke, or two beers)? Do you think the hectic conference site is not appropriate for an intimate scientific discussion with one of your peers? Or do you just feel bummed by all those posters that present the same stuff as you, but better? Join us at the SC Social HQ, a friendly riverside pub in Donauinseln (islands from the Danube), where you can relax after the day and meet other students from the conference.
