European Student Council Symposium 2018

The ISCB Student Council and its European Regional Student Groups are organizing the fifth European Student Council Symposium to be held on September 8, 2018 during one of the Tutorials/Workshop Days of ECCB 2018 in Athens, Greece.

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.

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for students and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics to build their own professional and personal network and contribute to the development of their scientific career. We want to stimulate interactions, and enable cooperativity between the students of different research institutions, with the scope of bringing students in contact with research happening at an international level, visualizing their work in a much larger scope and to connect aside the campus. It is an opportunity for the students to interact with their peers and senior researchers and having the opportunity for socializing with scholars from cutting edge research. At the same time, getting information about career opportunities by providing a platform for physical interaction between students/researchers and companies, our student symposium represents a valuable platform besides the home institutions and the ECCB. All the event is entirely organized by young students and young researchers from different academic institutions in Europe and other continents, who see in this challenge a big opportunity to test and improve their management skills, developing with enthusiasm a unique path towards the figure of successful bioinformatician of the future.
