Fellowships Offered – Deadlines Now Upon Us!
If you are a student or post doc in need of travel support funding
to make it to Brazil in order to present your accepted paper or
poster at ISMB 2006, you are encouraged to apply immediately for
a travel fellowship from the Society.
The deadline is May 1, 2006, so mere hours remain
to submit your funding application. Each year more than twice as
many applications are received than can be funded due to limited
resources, so not all applicants will be granted travel support.
However, many more students and post docs never apply at all because
they believe their chances are more limited than they really are.
Well, 50/50 odds are not so bad after all, and if travel support
is what you need to make it to ISMB we encourage you to apply today.

Funding confirmations will begin at the end of
May allowing plenty of time to capture the early conference registration
discount and airline/hotel reservations at favorable rates.
Although ISCB does not directly organize or own the ECCB conference,
the leaders of our Society are highly supportive of the excellent
science presented at this annual conference, and recognize the outstanding
educational opportunity it provides the young members of our field.
Therefore, the board of directors dedicated funds within the 2006
Society budget to support student travel to ECCB (as well as RECOMB
and PSB which were held in January and April respectively). The
application deadline is also fast approaching: May 29, with notification
by June 19.

PSB and RECOMB 2007
It is anticipated that ISCB will once again support student travel
fellowships to these two conferences in 2007, as well as the combined
ISMB/ECCB 2007 which will once again be held as a joint conference
as it was in 2004. Therefore, watch for announcements on the ISCB
website and in upcoming issues of this newsletter, and be sure to
submit your applications on time for consideration as a recipient
of these limited funds.
PSB 2007 Application form will be available on August 1, 2006. Please
