The ISCB Student Council is excited to announce the *13th Student Council
Symposium (SCS)* which will be hosted, preceding *ISMB/ECCB 2017*, at the
Prague Congress Centre in Czech Republic on July 21, 2017. The SCS is an
annual student-organized event, with a goal to highlight latest research
from a wide variety of subfields of bioinformatics and computational
The SCS 2017 will include keynote talks, contributed talks, poster session,
and a social event in the evening. The symposium is a great opportunity to
hear talks from an international group of students, learn about latest
advances in computational biology, and build a worldwide scientific network.
We are also pleased to announce our keynote speakers: *Professor Christine
Orengo* from University College London (UCL), and *Dr. Johannes Söding *from
the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry.
Prof. Orengo is an expert in bioinformatics and her research group, at UCL,
focuses on understanding how protein domains are conserved over
evolutionary time and developing methods to predict protein function. Dr.
Söding is specialized in the development of statistical methods for the
detection of distant evolutionary relationships on protein sequences.
Additional keynote information can be found online
