Exhibitors - ISMB/ECCB 2017
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) (www.iscb.org) was the first and continues to be the only society representing computational biology and bioinformatics worldwide. ISCB serves a global community of nearly 3,400 scientists dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation by:
- convening the world’s experts and future leaders in top conferences
- partnering with publications that promote discovery and expand access to computational biology and bioinformatics
- delivering valuable information about training, education, employment, and relevant news
- providing an influential voice on government and scientific policies that are important to our members
ISCB has three official journals – OUP Bioinformatics, PLOS Computational Biology and F1000Research ISCB Community Journal, and has affiliations in place with several other publications for the benefit of our members.
ISCB Student Council (SC, www.iscbsc.org) is an international network of young researchers in the broader disciplines of the field of Computational Biology. SC provides opportunities for networking, career enhancement and skills development for the next generation of Computational Biology leaders. The SC Symposium (symposium.iscbsc.org) is organized as a part of the annual ISMB conference with student presentations, keynotes, panel discussions and a poster session. Come visit our friendly SC representatives at the booth for more information.
The Royal Society journals offer rigorous, constructive peer review; open access options; promotion by a dedicated press office; and broad dissemination to an international audience. To find out more, please visit the Royal Society Publishing booth where Dr Tim Holt will be happy to answer your questions. Alternatively, visit our website at http://royalsociety.org/journals

At the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), we help scientists realise the potential of ‘big data’ in biology, helping them exploit complex information to make discoveries that benefit mankind. We manage the world’s public biological data and make it freely available to the scientific community via a range of services and tools, perform basic research and provide professional training in bioinformatics. We are part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), a non-profit, intergovernmental organisation funded by 21 member states and two associate member states. Our 570 staff represent 57 nationalities, and we welcome a regular stream of visiting scientists throughout the year. We are located on the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
The sbv IMPROVER project (www.sbvimprover.com), funded by Philip Morris International, was created to verify systems biology data, methods, and conclusions.
Computational challenges leveraging the wisdom of the crowd allow to benchmark methods for specific tasks, such as signature extraction. Four challenges have already been successfully conducted and confirmed that the aggregation of predictions often leads to better results than individual predictions.
Whenever the scientific question of interest does not have a gold standard, but may greatly benefit from the scientific community to come together and discuss their approaches and results, datathons are set up.
