2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019)
1-8 July, Freiburg, Germany
22 April: Oral Presentation and Lightning Talk abstracts due
17 May: Early registration ends
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) will be held 1-8 July
in Freiburg, Germany. GCC brings together hundreds of faculty,
clinicians, researchers, and students, all working in and supporting
data intensive science that is accessible, sharable and reproducible.
GCC2019 features oral presentations, lightning talks, posters, demos,
birds-of-a-feather gatherings (BoFs), training, a CollaborationFest,
and plenty of opportunities for networking.
Presentations will cover the full spectrum of Galaxy applications,
enhancements and deployments. If you are working in data intensive
science then GCC2019 is an ideal conference for sharing your work,
learning from others, and finding new collaborators.
Present your work!
Abstract submission for talks, lightning talks, demos and posters is
now open. If you work in data-intensive science then please consider
presenting your work at GCC2019. This is a chance to present to 200+
researchers, all addressing challenges in data intensive science.
Review of oral presentations starts on 22 April. Submit an abstract
(or two) now!
Early registration starts at €49/day for students and postdocs, and
€79 / day for other academics and non-profit researchers. Childcare
is available and travel fellowships are available as well. Early
registration ends 17 May, when rates go up by 60%. So, register early.
Galaxy (https://galaxyproject.org/) is a platform for data integration
and analysis in the life sciences. It enables researchers to build,
run, share, and repeat their own complex computational analyses using
only a web browser and without having to first learn system
administration and command line interfaces.
The Galaxy Project is driven by a vibrant community who publish
workflows and analyses, wrap new tools, maintain and enhance the
source code, provide support, and write documentation and training
materials. Galaxy is open-source and freely available, and is deployed
in hundreds of organizations, running on everything from laptops
through supercomputers to public and private clouds. Over 150 of these
platforms are publicly available and can be used with little or no
setup. Thousands of tools have been ported to Galaxy ("wrapped") and
are deployable from the Galaxy Tool Shed. Galaxy was developed to
support life science research, but the software is domain agnostic and
is now used in domains as diverse as natural language processing,
constructive solid geometry, and social science.
We hope to see you in Freiburg!
