Call for Proceedings!
Deadline: January 30, 2020
ISMB 2020 invites submissions of full papers (not abstracts) consisting of new, non-published work, reporting theoretical, computational, and statistical advances in computational biology and its intersections with other fields.

Call for Special Sessions Proposals!
Deadline: January 30, 2020
Submit your ISMB 2020 Special Sessions Proposal for emerging research areas! Special Sessions introduce the ISCB community and ISMB delegates to relevant 'hot' topics that are not already covered in the COSI tracks.
2019 ISCB Wikipedia Competition - Accepting Submissions!
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and the Computational Biology taskforce of WikiProject Molecular Biology announce the 9th ISCB Wikipedia Competition: the competition aims to improve the coverage on Wikipedia of any aspect of computational biology. The competition is open to students and trainees at any level either as individuals or as groups.
Last chance to register early for the 3rd edition of Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences
Can you imagine a better way to start the new year then by meeting and learning from some of the leading researchers in the field of bioinformatics? Register early for the third edition of Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences which will be held on February 13-14, 2020 in the beautiful city of Leuven, Belgium and you will save 20%. The early bird deadline is 20 December 2019.
ACM Names 2019 Fellows!
ACM has named 58 members 2019 ACM Fellows for significant contributions in areas including artificial intelligence, cloud computing, combating cybercrime, quantum computing and wireless networking.
New NIH Funding Opportunity!
The NIH Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) program is designed to facilitate the transition of promising postdoctoral researchers from diverse backgrounds, such as individuals from groups underrepresented in the biomedical research workforce at the faculty level, into independent faculty careers at research-intensive institutions. Visit here for more information.
Must See ISCBtv!
Did you miss ISMB/ECCB 2019? Not to worry! Recorded talks from the premier comp bio conference of the year have now been posted to ISCB's YouTube channel! Check them out now!

Giving Back Never Felt So Good

Donate Now to the Anna Tramontano Fund to help support the
next generation of computational biologists!

The goal of the Anna Tramontano Fellowship Fund is help reduce the financial burden to the students who are offered these internships by providing travel support. We hope that by providing financial support, reducing costs to the PIs, we will be able to increase the number of internships offered in a given year. Demand (students) continues to increase and this is an excellent way to develop our future researchers.

There are numerous ways you can participate as a supporter of ISCB: 2019 Student Travel Fellowship Campaign General Resources Fund Education and Training Initiatives Sponsor Membership Dues for Members from Developing Countries
