3rd ISCB-BR SCS: Network(ING) Announcement

The RSG-Brazil Team are pleased to officially announce and invite you to the 3rd edition of the ISCB - Brazilian Student Council Symposium, with the theme: Network(ING).

The 3rd BR-SCS: Network(ING), is a forward-thinking student conference to discuss the recent advances, existing state-of-the-art techniques, algorithms and applications of the networks theory in the broad area of bioinformatics and computational biology. Network-based research is currently a hot topic research field and a high interest of many groups around the globe. The field presents huge applications like designing new technologies for synthetic biology, personalized medicine, cancer target and cell behavior studies, comparative genomics and several others. Plus, we are look(ING) forward to build and provide network opportunities for the audience.

The symposium will be held at the city of São Pedro-SP on October 24th, preceding the 14th X-Meeting. We encourage you to submit your abstract for oral talk and poster presentation at . Through the day, we will have an amazing talk by Dr. Jan Baumbach, professor and chair of experimental bioinformatics, from the Technical University of Munich. The registrations are open and free! (

The Regional Student Group Brazil (RSG-Brazil) is afiliated to ISCB Student Council, the student organization of the International Society for Computational Biology. Our mission is promote the development of the next generation of computational biologists, through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft-skills training, educational resources and career advice, while attempting to influence policy processes affecting science and education.
