The VIII Bioinformatics Student Symposium is organized by RSG-Spain, an association of junior scientists in Bioinformatics based in Spain and satellite group of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), the largest scholar society in bioinformatics. Currently, RSG-Spain has six active local nodes in Madrid, Barcelona, Canarias, Granada, Euskadi and Cordoba.
Like in previous editions, this Symposium will include a day for research communications presented by students and a special career advice talk by senior scientists. As a novelty, the previous day will consist of a Meet&Greet with different relaxed activities. The event seeks to foster debate and collaborations among our network, also promoting RSG-Spain, the ISCB and the Student Council. In particular, the VII Student Symposium on Bioinformatics will be a great opportunity for RSG Spain members to meet together as our association has greatly grown in recent times and it spreads across several cities in the country.
The target audience includes undergraduates, master students, PhD students and postdocs working on the field of Bioinformatics in Spain.
