ISB Students and New Professionals Workshop
September 3rd, 2017

On the first day of the ICB (Sunday, 3 Sept 2017), all Students and New Professionals (SNP) are invited to attend a workshop specifically for young/new members of the discipline. Several experienced panelists and speakers will discuss topics related to:

Academic and Companies Job Search

Potential for the publication of papers (how to improve the quality of papers; discussions of the challenges for researchers from developed and developing countries)

 Research (the challenges to stimulate research from undergraduate and graduate students)

What comes after being a student and a young professional? (challenges when you are in the middle - not a new professional and not yet achieving a consolidated career)

The workshop aims to stimulate the exchange and discussion of ideas amongst students and new professionals from different countries and realities, and to discuss how we can increase our participation and renewal of members within ISB.

The workshop will be held on the campus of Durham University on Sunday, 3 September 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be included. The workshop registration fee is £20. Please sign up and pay when you register for the congress online at

A schedule for the SNP Workshop day will be provided to registered participants prior to the conference.
