BCC2020 is a joint event bringing together the BOSC and Galaxy Communities.
If you are working in data intensive life science research then there will
be no better event this year to share your work, and to learn from others.
BCC2020 will be held July 17-26, and offer 2 days of training, a 3 day
meeting, and a 4 day CollaborationFest.
BCC2020 is Online
All BCC2020 events will be held online. Training will be live and
interactive. The meeting will feature keynotes, accepted talks, lightning
talks, posters, demos, and birds-of-a-feather and other networking
opportunities. Talks (with the possible exception of keynotes) will be
pre-recorded. Posters, demos, and BoFs will be live and interactive. The
CoFest will also be live and interactive.
BCC2020 is Global
BCC2020 events will be held twice: once in the originally scheduled Toronto
time zone (BCC West), and then again 12 hours later in the Eastern
hemisphere (BCC East). Training will differ between East and West, with
enrollment open to all, regardless of where you are. The main conference
content will be presented in both East and West. We are striving to have
the CoFest run continuously, with participants from every part of the world.
BCC2020 is Affordable
We have slashed registration rates for BCC2020, and are offering even
larger discounts to participants based in low and lower-middle income
countries. Pricing starts at US$3 per training session, and $12 for the 3
day meeting. The CoFest is free.
BCC2020 is Accessible
Going online and global, combined with the low registration rates make this
the most accessible Galaxy and BOSC conference ever. If you work in open
source bioinformatics then this is 2020’s best opportunity to share your
work and learn from others.
Abstracts Due May 8
BCC2020 is seeking oral presentations, lightning talks, posters, and demos,
from researchers working in bioinformatics, and from all over the world.
Abstracts are due May 8 (and that deadline will not be extended). Please
submit your work today.
BCC2020 registration is now open. Registering early saves 50% off of the
We hope to see you in July at BCC2020,
