Call for abstracts

Submit your abstract now for the 3rd European Symposium of the International Society for Computational Biology Student Council, to be held on September 6th 2014 in Strasbourg, France, as a satellite meeting of the European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB)!

ESCS2014 will bring together young computational biologists from several research areas and regions of the world. As the central part of our symposium, 10 students will be selected for an oral presentation from the submitted abstracts. This is your chance to present your work to an international audience of young scientists! 
In addition, we are proud to host several keynotes from distinguished scientists, such as Dr. Lennart Martens from the University of Ghent and Dr. Jeroen de Ridder from the Delft University of Technology.

We welcome abstracts covering both scientific studies as well as novel tools and applications in the field of computational biology and bioinformatics. As in previous editions, awards will be given to outstanding posters and presentations. All abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be published in a special issue of the BMC Bioinformatics journal.
