ISCB: Past–Present Perspective for the International Society for Computational Biology
Bioinformatics (2014) 30 (1): 143-145 doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btt669
Since its establishment in 1997, International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) has contributed importantly toward advancing the understanding of living systems through computation. The ISCB represents nearly 3000 members working in 470 countries. It has doubled the number of members since 2007. At the same time, the number of meetings organized by the ISCB has increased from two in 2007 to eight in 2013, and the society has cemented many lasting alliances with regional societies and specialist groups. ISCB is ready to grow into a challenging and promising future. The progress over the past 7 years has resulted from the vision, and possibly more importantly, the passion and hard working dedication of many individuals.
ISCB/SPRINGER Series in Computational Biology
Andreas Dress, Michal Linial, Olga Troyanskaya, and Martin Vingron
Bioinformatics (2014) 30 (1): 146-147 doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btt670
Sponsored by ISCB, the Computational Biology series publish the latest high-quality research devoted to specific issues in computer-assisted analysis of biological data. The main emphasis is on current scientific developments and innovative techniques in computational biology (bioinformatics), bringing to light methods from mathematics, statistics and computer science that directly address biological problems currently under investigation.

International Society for Computational Biology Honors Goncalo Abecasis with Top Bioinformatics/Computational Biology Award for 2013
Christiana N. Fogg and Diane E. Kovats
Bioinformatics (2013) 29 (12): 1586-1587 Doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btt251
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB; http://www.iscb.org) honors a scientist each year for their outstanding achievements. The ISCB Overton Prize honors an early or mid-career scientist who has already made significant and enduring contributions to the field of computational biology. Dr Goncalo Abecasis of the University of Michigan is the 2013 recipient of the Overton Prize.
