Recognize Achievement - Nominate a Colleague for an ISCB Award
 

Awards Nominations Deadline - 06 December

Submit your nomination for one of these annual awards today.  The program is nomination based and we strong encourage the submission of nominations that are diverse in nature.  Self-nominations accepted.

* ISCB recognizes that career paths may take many forms and that the definition of “early/mid-career” is fluid. ISCB supports researchers taking time off for maternity/paternity, care for a family member, an event of personal disability or other factors. A nominee may qualify for the Overton Prize or Innovator Award even though their actual years since degree is above the set threshold. It is the responsibility of the nominator to indicate any time off taken when submitting the nomination form. ISCB may deduct the equivalent time for the maternity/paternity leave, care for a family member or personal disability from the set award thresholds using guidance established by the European Research Council (page 19, paragraph 5).

The award winners will be announced in Spring 2022.

 
The Overton Prize was established by the ISCB in memory of G. Christian Overton, a major contributor to the field of bioinformatics and a member of the ISCB Board of Directors who died unexpectedly in 2000. The annual prize is awarded for outstanding accomplishment to a scientist in the early to mid-career stage (up to a decade post-degree or equivalent experience*), who has already made a significant contribution to the field of computational biology.

The Senior Scientist Accomplishment Award is in recognition of outstanding service contributions by any member toward the betterment of ISCB through exemplary leadership, education, service, or a combination of the three.

Fellows Nominations Deadline - 09 December 

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.

Only members can nominate.
