Student Council Symposium 2015
The Student Council Symposium is a forum for students, post docs, 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.

July 10, 2015Student Council Symposium
Every year at its annual symposium, the ISCB Student Council organises 'Career Central' to present discussions, opinions and talks related to careers in bioinformatics. This year at ISMB/ECCB 2015, we are collaborating with the Junior PI group and COBE COSI on an AKES workshop dedicated to career development (AKES 06). This workshop will be of interest to a wide audience, from students and junior PIs, looking for new ways to build their careers, to senior faculty, looking for advice on how to mentor your students and get the best out of them.
The Student Council is proud to be organising the first session “Improving your elevator pitch” presented by Dr Mick Watson, Director of ARK-Genomics, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, UK. (@BioMickWatson).
You’ve just bumped into the person who could decide your next career move. They are about to head to their next meeting and you have two minutes to convince them that your science is worthy. Can you do it?
In this session you will learn the theory behind how to deliver a great elevator pitch. You will then get the opportunity to put this theory to the test, honing and practicing your pitch with other audience members so that the next time you hop in an elevator, you will be ready.
Mark the date and time - July 11, 1:30pm. Hope to see you all there!
We are pleased to announce that the call is now open for the submission of abstracts to the 11th ISCB Student Council Symposium, to be held on the 10 of July 2015 in Dublin, Ireland, as a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB).
The Student Council Symposium is a forum for students, post docs, and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience of young scientists, build a network within the computational biology community and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters exchange of ideas and knowledge.
We encourage you to submit an abstract to showcase your work at the Symposium’s poster session. As the central part of our symposium, 12 abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation. Awards will be given to outstanding posters and presentations. Travel fellowships will be available and candidates with accepted abstracts will be invited to apply.
