Let us know how the COVID-19 Pandemic is impacting you
As we consider how we can best serve and support the bioinformatics and computational biology research community during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, we’d like to hear from you about how current circumstances are affecting your ability and/or desire to participate in face-to-face events, and what might be helpful alternatives to such programs. Please take ~5 minutes to take our community assessment survey. Your feedback will help guide our strategic discussions.

 ISCBacademy Webinar Series
 
In conjunction with the communities of special interest (COSIs), select presentations are invited to give a live-streamed talk about their research. Access to the webinar series is complimentary for ISCB members. Nonmember can join for a fee. Mark your calendar for these upcoming webinars.

ISMB 2020 Fellowship Award Program
ISMB 2020 Fellowship Program is now accepting applicants. If you are unable to afford the participation fee for ISMB 2020 and hold an active ISCB membership, you can submit for a fellowship award that will cover the cost of the registration fees. With these unprecedented times, we will be opening up these awards to anyone who is an active ISCB member with priority going to members in low-income countries and students and postdoctoral fellows.
ISCB COVID-19 Section - Call for Submissions
If you are a member of ISCB we encourage you to submit entries to the Science collection and Tutorial collection. Your submission entails a pointer to the science content, a short description of background or purpose (two lines) and lists your name as submitter. Submission will be subjected to a basic check of scope and purpose.

ECCB 2020 Goes Virtual
ECCB 2020 Goes Virtual
The ECCB2020 Organising Committee has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation globally and its impact on the conference. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains to ensure the health and safety of all the ECCB2020 participants. This is the reason that leads us to announce that ECCB in its traditional format will be postponed to 2022 and a fully virtual edition for ECCB2020 will be organized. This virtual edition - the first one in 19th editions - will be structurally simpler to facilitate attendees' interactions while keeping the spirit of the ECCB series.
