The ISCB Student Council and its European Regional Student Groups are organizing the first European Student Council Symposium to be held on Sunday, September 26th, the Tutorials/Workshop Day of ECCB 2010 in Ghent, Belgium.

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.


Thank you

The symposium went very well and we hope all delegates enjoyed it. Thank you for coming, for your interest and the interesting presentations, posters and discussions. If you want to get involved with us next time, please contact us. See you next year in Vienna!
