SCS2020 - virtual event

We are delighted to announce the 16th ISCB Student Council Symposium (SCS), which will take place 10-11 July 2020 as a completely virtual event

This year, we welcome keynote speakers Elana J. Fertig (SKCCC / Johns Hopkins University) and Hamed S. Najafabadi (McGill University). Abstract submission is now open until May 13, both for oral and poster presentations. In addition, fellowships will be available to cover the registrations costs. More details are available at our website. We would like to thank our sponsor, Harvard Medical School, for supporting the Symposium!

The COVID-19 crisis prevents us from gathering physically, but we are convinced that we can reach and unite even more young Computational Biology researchers across the globe with this new and accessible virtual format.


For frequent updates, please check our website, or connect via twitter.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.


We look forward to meeting you in July!


On behalf of the SCS2020 organising team,
