Description: 

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) will provide travel fellowships to help students and postdocs attend the ECCB2022 to present a talk or a poster at the conference. Funding sources for travel fellowships are very limited, and we regret that we may not be able to fund all applicants. The conference organizers are committed to supporting as many eligible applicants as possible. Fellowship consideration is based on ISCB membership, accepted work to ECCB2022 and country economic status based on World Bank rankings.
