The International Society for Computational Biology introduced the ISCB Fellows Program in 2009 to honor members that have distinguished themselves through outstanding contributions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. During the inaugural year of the program, ISCB conferred the Fellow status on the seven winners-to-date of the ISCB Accomplishment by a Senior Scientist Award, and recognized these distinguished scientists during the ISMB/ECCB 2009 conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, ISCB has sought nominations from our community of members, which are reviewed and voted upon by a selection committee. New Fellows are introduced at each year's ISMB conference.

Nomination Process:

We encourage a careful preparation of the nomination material. The nominator should not assume that the voters are familiar with the candidate. For this reason, the nomination should concentrate on the information that is essential, demonstrates the excellence and impact of the candidate's scientific work, their service to, and leadership roles in, ther scientific field.

The ISCB Fellows Selection Committee, along with the current ISCB Fellows, will select nominees that have distinguished themselves through outstanding contricutions to the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics, incorporating the following criteria in the selection process:
