The Galaxy Community Conference has been held annually since 2010. This year's event (GCC2015) is being hosted by The Sainsbury Lab in Norwich, UK. We are now seeking proposals from any organization interested in hosting GCC2016.
GCC draws 200+ participants from data-intensive life science research. Participants come from around the world, from all career stages, and do research spanning the tree of life. Universities, hospitals and medical schools, research organizations, and industry are all represented, including the largest and most influential organizations in the world.
What do we need to host GCC, you ask? In approximately decreasing order of importance:
Enthusiasm to plan and organize a 3+ day event for more than 200 people.
Hosts get copious (and enthusiastic) organizational support from Galaxy's Outreach Team (who have been helping to organize GCC since 2011), and even more copious gratitude (even adulation!) from the Galaxy Community. If you are interested in possibly hosting GCC2016 next summer then please contact Galaxy Outreach. Our goal is to announce the site at this year's conference in July.
Hoping to work with you in 2016!
Dave Clements and the Galaxy Team
