8th ISCB Student Council Symposium 2012

Submit your abstract now for the 8th Symposium of the International Society for Computational Biology Student Council, to be held on the 13th of July, 2012 in Long Beach, California, as a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB)!

The ISCB Student Council Symposium 2012 will bring together young computational biologists from several research areas and regions of the world. As the central part of our symposium, 10 students will be selected for an oral presentation from the submitted abstracts. This is your chance to present your work to an international audience of young scientists. We welcome abstracts covering both scientific studies as well as novel tools and applications in the field of computational biology and bioinformatics. All abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be published in a special issue of BMC Bioinformatics journal.

As in previous editions, awards will be given to outstanding posters and presentations. Travel Fellowships will also be available: all candidates with accepted abstracts are encouraged to apply! Travel Fellowship submission will be open for one entire week after acceptance notification.
