International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB)
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB, www.iscb.org) organizes and hosts the Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB), now in its 19th year and presented this year as a joint meeting with the 10th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB). The mission of ISCB is to advance the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. On behalf of its global membership, ISCB communicates the significance of our science to the larger scientific community, governments, and the public at large, thus impacting government and scientific policies.
Primary activities include providing high quality publications and meetings, and distributing valuable information about training, education, employment and relevant news from related fields. ISCB membership offers many benefits including reduced conference registration fees to several high impact conferences, most prominently ISMB, ECCB, PSB and RECOMB. ISCB proudly offers Bioinformatics and the open-accessPLoS Computational Biology as its official journals, and publishes the ISMB conference proceedings in partnership with Oxford University Press in open-access format as part of a regular issue of Bioinformatics. In addition, ISCB members enjoy exclusive subscription discounts on a selection of journals related to computational biology and bioinformatics.
ECCB12 is the key European computational biology event in 2012 uniting scientists working in a broad range of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. Participation at ECCB12 will be the prime opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in computational biology and bioinformatics and to network with other members of our community.
Come and visit us at the booth to learn more about ECCB12 , and win a weekend in Switzerland!
