Upcoming Conferences

A Global Community

  • ISCB Student Council

    dedicated to facilitating development for students and young researchers

  • Affiliated Groups

    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E. Kovats, ISCB Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

About GLBIO Conferences

The ISCB hosts the GLBIO Conference. The conference began in Ohio in 2006 and was formerly named the OCCBIO and was hosted by the Ohio Bioinformatics Consortium (www.ohiobioinformaticsconsortium.org) . In 2010 the ISCB board voted to make this an official regional conference of the ISCB and it was renamed GLBIO (Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference). As in past years, this conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussing approaches, research findings, and educational experiences regarding computational investigations of biological problems.

An important goal of this regional conference continues to be fostering long-term collaborative relationships among informatics and life sciences researchers and educators from academia, government and industry, spanning the North American Great Lakes region and the Canadian province of Ontario. Researchers from all other world regions are also welcome and encouraged to participate, especially those looking to form collaborations with key labs in the Great Lakes region.

This meeting is not only for experts in bioinformatics, but also for faculty, students and staff who make substantial use of bioinformatics tools in their work or would like to expand their use.

The meeting is held over 2.5 days, and includes keynote presentations, oral presentations, tutorial sessions , invited topic sessions and poster sessions.
