In addition to previous years' schedules, a career event will be organized with a variety of distinguished speakers from industry and academia. The Symposium is tailored mainly to undergraduate and graduate students as well as post-docs in computational biology and related disciplines.
The Student Council Symposium is a forum for students, post docs, and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience, build a network within the computational biology community and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters exchange of ideas and knowledge.

The meeting will take place on 19 November 2016, at the National University of San Martin in the city of Buenos Aires.

Workshop: "Data Visualization"

The workshop will be offered by Seán O'Donoghue.He is Group Leader and Senior Faculty Member at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney. He has been actively engaged in bioinformatics research since 1988. He contributed to the development of ARIA, a method widely used for calculating 3D structures from NMR data. Since then, he has initiated and is leading several projects, including VizBi, an international initiative aimed at improving data visualization and user experience in bioinformatics software; VizbiPlus, aimed at educating and inspiring the general public about cutting-edge biomedical research (Finalist, 2015 NSW Emerging Creative Talent Award); Aquaria (first prize, 2015 NSW iAward for Research and Development), a resource that simplifies discovery and insight from protein structures; Martini, a resource for comparing gene lists; Minardo, a method for visualizing the time-course of posttranslational events in cells (finalist, 2015 Eureka Prize for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Scientific Research); and Reflect, a browser plug-in designed to help in understanding life science literature that is widely used by many life scientists.

The workshop will take place on 18 November 2016, at the National University of San Martin in the city of Buenos Aires.
