The Computational Modeling of Biological Systems (SysMod) Community of Special Interest (COSI) of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) is a forum for discussion about the combined use of systems biology modeling and bioinformatics to understand biology and disease. SysMod encompasses all methods used in bioinformatics and systems biology, as well as all biological systems and all applications areas. The main activities of SysMod include an annual meeting at the Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB ) conference organized by the ISCB and an online forum .

Annual meeting

The main activity of SysMod is an annual 1-day meeting at the annual Intelligent Systems in Molecular Biology (ISMB ) conference organized by the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB ). The meeting is a forum for discussion about the integration of systems biology and bioinformatics. The meetings include keynote talks, contributed talks, and poster sessions. The third annual SysMod meeting will take place on July 7, 2018 in Chicago. Please see the meeting page  for more information.
