About the event


The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) Student Council would like to invite you to connect your company name to the 29th Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2021) and the 20th European Conference in Computational Biology (ECCB 2021), by sponsoring the 17th Student Council Symposium 2021 (SCS 2021). Although originally to be held in Lyon, France, the COVID-19 pandemic has urged us to make this a completely virtual symposium organised by the ISCBSC. The event will be held on Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th of July.

The annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) is the largest and main multidisciplinary computational biology and bioinformatics conference covering a broad range of research areas. The growing ISMB conference attracts leading bioinformatics researchers, computational biologists, bio-IT professionals, researchers in molecular biology, molecular medicine, biophysics, biostatistics, and systems biology from both academia and industry.


The Student Council Symposium, organized as pre-meeting of the annual ISMB, enables students and young researchers (PhD students & Junior Postdocs) in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics to connect and build a network within the global computational biology community. Participants have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters the exchange of ideas and knowledge.

If your company/organization would like to increase its visibility among early-career scientists in Computational Biology and related areas we offer you various sponsorship opportunities at very competitive rates!
