7 very good REASONS:
1.- SoIBio is an International scientific and professional Society that promotes BIOINFORMATICS & COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY in the large region of IberoAmerica, that includes 22 COUNTRIES: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Republica Dominicana, Uruguay, Venezuela, plus Spain and Portugal.
2.- If you are member of SoIBio you will have the opportunity to participate in the ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE of the Society, organized each year in a different country; and you will enjoy the benefit of a special reduction on the registration fees (of about 20-25%) as a member of SoIBio.
3.- If you are member of SoIBio you will have the opportunity to participate in multiple INTERNATIONAL COURSES promoted by SoIBio with a special reduction on the registration to the courses (of about 20-25%) as a member of SoIBio. As an example of this benefit see the courses organized in México in 2017: http://congresos.nnb.unam.mx/TIB2017/
4.- If you are member of SoIBio you will have the opportunity to interact and participate in International SCIENTIFIC EXCHANGE Programs promoted by SoIBio together with different national institutions and international organizations, like for example ISCB or GOBLET.
5.- If you are member of SoIBio you can participate in the development and promotion of BIOINFORMATICS & COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY in your country, with the added the value of interacting at INTERNATIONAL level with other scientists, academics and professionals of IberoAmerica, that are also working in this field. In this way you will be joining an active community in a research area really new and promising that is critical for the current development of Biological and Biomedical Sciences in our countries.
6.- If you are a master or predoctoral STUDENT (or even a Young POSTDOC, < 30 years old) and you want to become a member of SoIBio, you only will have to pay a quite low membership fee (you will enjoy a reduction of about a 60% over the REGULAR Membership).
7.- If you currently are a full MEMBER of another Bioinformatics Society (national within the region or international, like for example: AB3C from Brazil, A2B2C from Argentina, SC2B2 from Colombia or ISCB the international society), you will have a great reduction on your REGULAR Membership fees to SoIBio (50% reduction in the 3 year plan !!!).
