International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB)

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB, www.iscb.org) organizes and hosts the Annual International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) and this year celebrates the its 20th Anniversary of ISMB. The mission of ISCB is to advance the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. On behalf of its global membership, ISCB communicates the significance of our science to the larger scientific community, governments, and the public at large, thus impacting government and scientific policies.

Primary activities include providing high quality publications and meetings, and distributing valuable information about training, education, employment and relevant news from related fields. ISCB membership offers many benefits including reduced conference registration fees to several high impact conferences, most prominently ISMB, ECCB, PSB and RECOMB. ISCB proudly offers Bioinformatics and the open-accessPLoS Computational Biology as its official journals, and publishes the ISMB conference proceedings in partnership with Oxford University Press in open-access format as part of a regular issue of Bioinformatics. In addition, ISCB members enjoy exclusive subscription discounts on a selection of journals related to computational biology and bioinformatics.
