Sponsorship Opportunities

Symbiosys17 is the 3rd incarnation of the UK's ISCB Regional Student Group's annual bioinformatics conference. We'll host around 50 PhD students, post-docs and early career researchers from around the UK. We pose an excellent venue for recruitment of young researchers in search of interesting challenges, as well as advertising to an audience that may not have formed their brand loyalties yet.
We would love if you could join us to make our event a success.

Venue Sponsor
It could be you?

In exchange for helping us cover our venue costs, we'll put some lovely things about your company, or product here. Your logo will appear on the front of our website and programme. We'll give you a full page of our programme to fill. And of course, we'll be sure to mention how you've helped make our conference possible throughout the day.


Accommodation Sponsor
It could be you?

Aberystwyth is too beautiful to spend just a day here, so we'd like to host our attendees for a night or two. If you help us out, we'll add your logo to the front of our website and programme, along with a page in the programme. We'll be sure to raise our glasses to you at one of the pub-based activities and if we can get away with it, we can pretend our accommodation is named after you.


Prize Sponsor
It could be you?

If you'd like to help us provide one (or more) prizes for best student talks and posters, we will happily say some nice things about your company or product here. Your logo will appear on the front of our website and programme. One or more awards will be named after your company or product.


Travel Fellowship Sponsor
It could be you?

Aberystwyth's award winning coastline is just a train or two away, but we'd like to help some of our attendees get here. If you can help us out, we'll name our travel bursaries after you and add your logo to the front of our website and programme. You'll make some research students pretty grateful, too.


Hackathon Sponsor
It could be you?

We'd love to provide some snacks and pizza to attendees who join us for the night before the conference. If you can make this happen, we'll name our hackathon after you. Your logo will appear on the front of our website and programme, and our pizza-filled attendees will be thanking your brand before we even begin the conference proper.


Refreshments Sponsor
It could be you?

We'll be thinking of you and your products every time we pick up a paper cup, if you pick up our coffee bill. We'll put your logo and provided advertising materials on display at our refreshment stands during one (or more) of our scheduled coffee breaks.


Cake Sponsor

We have it on good authority that the best conferences have a cake sponsor. If you'd like to help us acquire a cake to top off our conference, we'll add you to our website and programme and be sure to thank you during the sugar rush. If it sweetens the deal, we might even save you a slice.


Swag and Stands

If you have some exciting swag to give away, or would like to have a stand to get to know our attendees and speakers, please get in touch!
