We are excited to announce that the ISCB Student Council and its Regional Student Groups (RSGs) are organizing the ISCB sixth European Student Council Symposium (ESCS) on Sunday 6th September 2020 in Sitges (Spain), as a satellite event preceding the European Conference in Computational Biology (ECCB 2020).
The ESCS provides a forum for students and young researchers in the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology to meet, present their work in front of an international audience, build a network within the computational biology community and obtain opportunities that can contribute to the development of their scientific career. The primary goal of the event is to promote interactions between students coming from different research institutes, providing them with a physical platform to socialize with their peers and senior researchers at an international level. We also invite a number of distinguished keynote speakers to present important advances in the field, share their experiences in academia and provide stimulating career advice.
The ESCS is entirely organized by a motivated international team of young students and researchers.
You can always follow the updates about ESCS on our twitter account (@escs2020, and tweets with the hashtag #ESCS2020), Facebook and Instagram account (ESCS2020). We are looking forward to seeing you in Sitges on 6th September!
