MLCB Workshop Joins MLCSB COSI
On October 1st 2018, the Machine Learning in Computational Biology (MLCB, mlcb.org) workshop joined the Community of Special Interest for "Machine Learning in Computational and Systems Biology” (MLCSB) of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). Joining forces of MLCB and MLCSB, the community will provide a common platform for all research activities at the interface of machine learning and computational and systems biology. Continuing MLCB's and MLCSB's successful track records of past workshops and conference sessions, MLCSB plans to host at least one conference session at the Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology (ISMB) Conference and one additional workshop per year. More information will be available on the COSI webpage http://cosi.iscb.org/wiki/MLCSB:Home) and through the Google group (https://groups.google.com/a/iscb.org/forum/#!forum/mlcsb.cosi).


Call for Papers: RECOMB 2019
- Deadline: October 30, 2018

The RECOMB conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for advances in computational biology and applications in molecular biology and medicine. The conference aims at bridging the computational, mathematical, statistical, and biological sciences, and bringing together researchers, professionals, students and industrial practitioners from all over the world for interaction and exchange of new developments in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. The conference will feature keynote talks by leading scientists, presentations of peer-reviewed high-quality research papers, presentations of exciting research developments that were published within the past year and poster sessions on latest research progress. Submit your research today!


Register Now: November 9 National Convocation for Leaders in Academia on Preventing Sexual Harassment

NIH Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Provisions for a Future Draft Data Management and Sharing Policy

On October 10, 2018, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a Request for Information (RFI) in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts to solicit public input on proposed key provisions that could serve as the foundation for a future NIH policy for data management and sharing. The feedback we obtain will help to inform the development of a draft NIH policy for data management and sharing, which is expected to be released for an additional public comment period upon its development. Comments on the proposed key provisions will be accepted through December 10, 2018.

Funding opportunity for U.S. scientists in Informatics: September 1, 2018
The PhRMA Foundation’s mission is to support young U.S. scientists in disciplines important to the pharmaceutical industry by awarding them competitive research fellowships and grants. 2019 funding opportunities are available at pre-doctoral, post-doctoral, starter grant and sabbatical levels. The goal of the Informatics Program is to promote the use and development of informatics in an integrative approach towards the understanding of human biological and disease processes. Informatics awards will support career development of scientists engaged in research that significantly integrates cutting-edge information technology with advanced biological, chemical, and pharmacological sciences.


ECCB 2018 Early Bird Registration Closing July 31!
On 8-12 September 2018 the Hellenic Society for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics will organise the seventeenth edition of the European Conference on Computational Biology in association with the ELIXIR. The ECCB 2018 will take place in the historic city of Athens in Greece. It is the main computational biology event in Europe and will welcome scientists working in a variety of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. Participating in ECCB 2018 will be the perfect opportunity to keep pace with cutting edge research, and to network with members of ECCB community. Register today!
