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.).

ISCB Meetings

A core element of ISCB's mission is to advance the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. A concerted effort toward achieving this mission is focused on serving our global membership through high quality meetings. Intellectual leadership through meetings is a long standing tradition of the ISCB as evidenced by the growing list of conferences and events the Society produces directly or co-sponsors/affiliates-with each year. Each conference that bears the ISCB name or logo is intended to achieve rapid dissemination of the latest scientific trends and topics by highlighting emerging and continuing challenges of our science. Society activities are further diversified through specialized tracks/workshops/sessions within these conferences or as stand-alone events.

ISCB Conference offerings include:


Past Conferences & Events
- A complete listing of past ISCB produced and past affiliated/co-sponsored meetings is available to gain a historical perspective of when and where various meetings have been held.
