ISMB 2020 - Mark your calendars!

The annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) is the flagship meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). The 2020 conference is the 28th ISMB conference, which has grown to become the world's largest bioinformatics/computational biology conference.

ISMB brings together scientists from computer science, molecular biology, mathematics, statistics and related fields and provides an intense multidisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest developments in bioinformatics/computational biology.  The conference fosters fresh dialogues, collaboration and learning opportunities, and is a gathering which shapes the future of the field. At the heart of the scientific program are the ISCB’s Communities of Special Interest (COSIs), enabling intensified community involvement and bolstering its reputation as the leading conference in the field.  A strong scientific and technical program showcases the best international developments in bioinformatics and computational biology, making ISMB 2020 a must attend event.
