Nominations Deadline - 08 December

We consider two types of Fellow nominations:

(i) Academic nominees: These are nominees who have done the bulk of their work in academia, including government and research institutions. Such nominations must demonstrate primarily excellence in research, which includes the development of methods or resources that advance research. The nomination can be strengthened by pointing to service to the computational biology community, education and/or administration.

(ii) Industry nominees: These are nominees who have done the bulk of their work in industry. Such nominations must demonstrate primarily the impact of their industrial work on the field. The nomination can be strengthened by pointing to research, education, or service to the computational biology community, e.g. by providing research infrastructure.

The Fellows program is nomination based and we strong encourage the submission of nominations that are diverse in nature.

New Fellows are introduced at each year's ISMB conference.
