MEDIA INVITATION - Complimentary Press Pass

ISMB/ECCB 2013 invites accredited media working for scientific news organizations to apply for a complimentary press pass. This premier event for computational biology will provide members of the media access to three information packed days with a wide range of scientific presentations. In addition, you will have access to hundreds of scientific posters and numerous exhibitors.

Press passes are limited, and are granted only to working journalists who intend to cover the event. To qualify for press credentials, you must be affiliated with an internationally, nationally or regionally recognized media outlet, and hold an editorial title and or hold a position as an industry analyst. Personnel that are in sales, advertising, marketing, account management, or other non-editorial professions will not be granted a press pass. (ISCB reserves the right to request documentation regarding credentials.)

ISMB/ECCB 2013 is presented as the 21st annual meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) and the 12th annual meeting of the European Conference on Computational Biology. Conference details on past Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology are available through this link-

ISMB/ECCB 2013 will offer the strongest scientific program and the broadest scope of any international bioinformatics conference in 2013. Building on the success of past conferences the program is designed to cater to a variety of disciplines within the bioinformatics community, resulting in the largest and most important computational biology event globally.
