GCC2017 will be held at Le Corum Conference Centre http://www.montpellier-events.com/en/The-Corum/Presentation in the heart of Montpellier https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/location, just 10km from the Mediterranean. This event will gather several hundred researchers addressing diverse questions and facing common challenges in data intensive life science research. GCC participants work across the tree of life, come from around the world, and work at universities, research organizations, industry, medical schools and research hospitals. If you work in or support data intensive life science research then GCC2017 is an ideal opportunity to present your work.
Early registration https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/registration is starts at less than 55€ / day for post-docs and students. You can also book low cost conference housing https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/lodging when you register.

Galaxy https://galaxyproject.org/ is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical analysis used by tens of thousands of researchers around the world. It supports ad hoc exploration and analysis through scalable and repeatable data analysis pipelines for large research studies. Galaxy is available in over 90 free and publicly accessible web servers, on commercial and national cloud infrastructures, and is locally installed at hundreds, if not thousands, of research organisations around the world.
We hope to see you this summer in Montpellier!
