Last chance to submit your abstract for SCS2017 Prague



The ISCB Student Council is excited to announce the 13th Student Council
Symposium (SCS) which will be hosted, preceding ISMB/ECCB 2017, at the
Prague Congress Centre in Czech Republic on July 21, 2017. The SCS is an
annual student-organized event, with a goal to highlight latest research
from a wide variety of subfields of bioinformatics and computational
biology.



SCS 2017 will bring an exciting program that includes keynote talks,
contributed talks, poster session, and a social event in the evening. The
symposium is a great opportunity to hear talks from an international group
of students, learn about latest advances in computational biology, and
build a worldwide scientific network.



We are also pleased to announce our keynote speakers:

Professor Christine Orengo from University College London (UCL). Prof.
Orengo is an expert in bioinformatics and her research group, at UCL,
focuses on understanding how protein domains are conserved over
evolutionary time and developing methods to predict protein function.

Professor Johannes Söding from the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical
Chemistry. ). Prof. Söding is specialized in the development of statistical
methods for the detection of distant evolutionary relationships on protein
sequences, improving multiple sequence alignments and protein structure
prediction.

Additional keynote information can be found online.



You still can submit an abstract for an oral presentation and/or poster,
however the deadline is approaching fast (April 30,2017).
