S01 - European Student Council Symposium

The ISCB Student Council and its European Regional Student Groups are organizing the third European Student Council Symposium to be held on Saturday, September 6th.

The European Student Council Symposium is a forum for students and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience, build a network within the computational biology community and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters exchange of ideas and knowledge. 

We welcome abstracts covering scientific studies as well as novel tools and applications in the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. As in previous editions, awards will be given to outstanding posters and presentations. All abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be published in a special issue of the BMC Bioinformatics journal. You are allowed to submit the same abstract to ESCS and ECCB.
