Fellowship applications


*** This call is closed ***


The 11th European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB12) will provide several conference fellowships to help students and postdocs presenting a poster or paper to attend the conference.


Several organizations support ECCB by granting fellowships. Grantees will be communicated the source of support and must acknowledge it in their paper or poster. The award will depend on your geographical location. The maximum amount that you will be reimbursed will be included in your award letter.


Travel fellowships will pay for a partial contribution towards lodging, conference registration, and travel expenses. Affiliated expenses, such as evening meals, workshops, tutorials, late registration fees, and satellite meetings will not be eligible for reimbursement.

The conference organizers are committed to providing support to as many eligible applicants as possible. However, our funding sources are very limited and we regret that we are not able to fund all applicants. Applying for a fellowship does not guarantee that you will receive funding. If you require a fellowship to attend the conference, do not register until after you have been notified that you have received an award.



Key dates






Applicant must be listed as an author or co-author on the original submission of an accepted ECCB'12 proceedings paper or poster. (Submitters to the "Call for Late Posters" and "Highlights presentations" are not eligible for fellowship funding due to late deadlines for these tracks.)  The funded applicant must be the presenting author of the work, i.e. only one person will be considered per paper or poster; multiple authors applying  with the same poster title for a fellowship will not be considered.
