ISMB Conference Series

ISMB ECCB 2019 - July 21 - 25, 2019 in Basel, Switzerland

As always ISMB/ECCB 2019 will provide an intense multidisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest developments in bioinformatics/computational biology, fostering fresh dialogues and perspectives to learn about and shape the future of the field. In response to the increasing interest in the activities of the ISCB’s Communities of Special Interest (COSIs) who have previously organized the Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings at ISMB, ISMB/ECCB 2019 will be organized with the active participation of the COSIs. ISMB/ECCB 2019 will be more streamlined and will have an outstanding scientifically effective program.

The new conference format will retain the key features that make ISMB a successful open conference, including proceedings talks and presentations that include highlights (previously published research) and late-breaking research, outstanding keynote lectures, technical tracks and industry sessions. In addition, equal opportunities activities, a students’ council day, tutorials and other activities will take place. The new structure is intended to bring a new energy and flow to the conference by centering it thematically around the vibrant ISCB COSI communities. Further, with the COSIs more central to the conference, networking within and between the scientific communities will be greatly enhanced. Each year, including 2019, conference program chairs will encourage the emergence of new scientific themes through special sessions for emerging communities.

ISMB-ECCB 2019 will enable intensified community involvement and bolster its reputation as the leading conference in the field, with the strongest scientific and technical program that showcases the best international developments in bioinformatics and computational biology.

About ISMB
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.

ISMB Mission
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.

ISMB History
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.

Therefore, Lawrence Hunter, then a programmer at the US National Library of Medicine, put to use a popular database he had generated of researchers interested in artificial intelligence and molecular biology from research papers and conference mailing lists by inviting those researchers to a 1992 joint NLM meeting with the National Science Foundation on the future of what was then termed artificial intelligence in molecular biology. The following year, the meeting evolved into the first Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB), held in Washington DC. That first ISMB attracted approximately 200 scientists; today more than 1500 show up.

In August 2012 PLoS Computational Biology published an article authored by Todd Gibson titled, "The Roots of Bioinformatics in ISMB." The article weaves together the story of ISMB through interviews conducted by the author with several of the founding fathers of the ISMB conference. The results is an interesting look into the origins and maturation of the conference series.

Past keynote addresses. One of the highlights of each ISMB conference is a collection of keynotes delivered by researchers of the highest international esteem who are asked to inform the community of historical perspectives or landmark advances in computational and experimental research, and inject new directions into the field of computational molecular biology. Past keynote speakers are listed below (affiliations are accurate to the year the keynote was given).

ISCB/ECCB Collaboration
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 2019 - July 21 - 25, 2019 in Basel, Switzerland.

ISMB Conference Series

ISMB/ECCB 2011 - Vienna, Austria, July 17-19, 2011

The Nineteenth Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2011) will be held jointly with the Tenth Annual European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB) in Vienna, Austria, July 17 - July 19, 2011, where we expect >1500 attendees.

Since ISMB 2008 in Toronto we have encouraged an increased participation of scientists involved in experimental biology. This guiding goal positively impacted the organization of the ISMB and ECCB meetings in many ways, including through the introduction of Special Session Tracks for related disciplines, a Highlight Tracks for work published in journals frequented by experimental biologists, and a Late Breaking Research Track for the presentation of submitted abstracts of research in progress. And the 2010 addition of a public lecture keynote presentation opened the conference to the local community for the very first time.

The Vienna conference program will include over 40 contributed papers selected by an international program committee during a rigorous review process rivaling the editorial procedure for top-rate scientific journals with an acceptance rate of ~19%. Contributed papers are collected in a proceedings published as part of an online-only issue of the Oxford University Press journal Bioinformatics and are distributed in USB-stick form to all attendees at the conference. Several parallel tracks are not tied to publication in the conference proceedings, and therefore offer experimentalists and industry researchers, as well as mainstream ISMB attendees, additional opportunities to present their work at the conference. A further point in the program is an extensive and lively poster session; at recent ISMB conferences 600-1,000 posters have been presented.

ISCB provides Travel Fellowship funds exclusively for ISCB student and post doctoral members to attend the annual Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB), Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB), Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB), the European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), and APBioNet's International Conference on Computational Biology (InCoB). With the exception of PSB which is regularly held the first week of January in Hawaii, these other conferences typically move around geographically each year, and each are separated by several weeks or several months so as not to overlap.

If you are a student or post doc presenting a paper or poster at any of these conferences and you need travel support funds to attend the conference please complete the application process as outlined on each of the conference websites (see conference calendar for links to the respective upcoming conference websites).

ISCB fellowships to the annual ISMB conference are primarily supported through grant funds from U.S. government agencies, including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DOE), and in some cases the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIH/NIGMS). When ISMB is held in conjunction with ECCB additional fellowship funding may be supported through European agencies.

As a member society of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), all of ISCB's Society-run annual conferences, ISMB, Rocky, CSHALS, GLBIO, ISCB-Africa, ISCB-Asia, and ISCB-Latin America are also eligible for the Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) travel fellowship program supported by a long- term grant from the NIH. The MARC funds are exclusively designated for minority scientists who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders). Full information on the MARC funding program can be found on the FASEB website at www.faseb.org.

Due to limited funds we regret that it is generally not possible to fund all travel fellowship applicants to the above conferences.
