The annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) is the flagship meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). The 2019 conference is the 27th ISMB conference and has grown to become the world's largest bioinformatics/computational biology conference.
ISMB/ECCB brings together scientists from computer science, molecular biology, mathematics, statistics, and related fields. Its principal focus is on the development and application of advanced computational methods for biological problems.
ISMB provides an intense multidisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest developments in bioinformatics/computational biology, fostering fresh dialogues and perspectives to learn about and shape the future of the field. In response to the increasing interest in the activities of the ISCB’s Communities of Special Interest (COSIs) the conference is organized with the active participation of the COSIs in the development of the program and highlights emerging or "hot" research areas providing an outstanding scientifically effective program.
