|ISMB/ECCB 2015 - July 10 – 14, 2015, Dublin, Ireland|
|The 23rd Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2015) hosted by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) will be held together with the 14th Annual European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), under the name of ISMB/ECCB 2015. The conference takes place in Dublin, Ireland, with pre-conference events on July 10 & 11, and the main conference from July 12 - 14, 2015, where over 1500 attendees are expected to participate.
ISMB/ECCB attracts top international scientists in the life sciences and offers a strong scientific program and the broadest scope of any international bioinformatics/computational biology. Topics of interest include sequence analysis, evolution and phylogeny, comparative genomics, protein structure, molecular and supramolecular dynamics, molecular evolution, gene regulation and transcriptomics, RNA biology, proteomics, systems biology, ontologies, databases and data integration, text mining and information extraction, and human health.
|The ISMB conferences began in 1993 and were the driving force behind the founding of the International Society for Computational Biology in 1997, which has been organizing this conference ever since. ISCB is the only society representing computational biology on a worldwide scale and its flagship conference ISMB has become the largest conference on computational biology worldwide. ISCB continues to see ISMB as its major flagship annual event.|
|The ISMB conference series aims at attracting the top research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology. Typical, but not exclusive, the topics of interest are: Sequence analysis, Evolution and phylogeny, Comparative genomics, Protein structure, Molecular and supramolecular dynamics, Molecular evolution, Gene regulation and transcriptomics, Proteomics, Systems biology, Ontologies, data bases and data integration, Text mining and information extraction, and Human health. The conference also aims to attract participants from related disciplines in order to understand the need that exists for computational approaches in related fields, and to gain from approaches taken in other disciplines that might be appropriate for computational biology.|
The Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology, known today as simply ISMB, was started in the early 1990's to bring together researchers with an interest in applying a computational approach to biological investigation. At that time it was challenging to find people who did this work in either computer science or molecular biology, as few scientists in either discipline had a clear idea of what bioinformatics was or how to find other people doing it.

|ISMB 2016 - (and every even numbered year thereafter) - July in North America (dates and locations TBA as they are confirmed)|
|The European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) has been organized annually since 2002 by a panel of European Computational Biologists and is the only pan-European conference series in this field. In 2004 ISMB and the European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) joined forces in a common meeting that was by many standards perceived as the most successful such meeting in computational biology to-date. ECCB and ISCB have agreed to share their main meetings whenever ISMB meets in Europe, which is currently planned to be every other year (odd numbered years). The next common meeting will be ISMB/ECCB 2015 in Dublin, Ireland.|
