I am definitively interested in any form of collaboration - thank you
very much for bringing up this idea!
However, I also share some of the concerns which have been raised by
others. Even in Europe, we sometimes struggle to coordinate a conference
call with the Americas and very often the quality is so bad it is
impossible to have a discussion. Also, looking at the success of your
original e-mail, now imagine a conference call with more than 20
You can call me 'old fashion' but I prefer face-to-face meetings. So I
am looking very much forward to Chicago this summer. I am aware, due to
costs and other reasons not everybody will be able to attend GCC.
Having regional Galaxy meetings is one solution. Together with the
Galaxy developers, I intended to organize an European Galaxy workshop as
part of ECCB2012 in Basel in September. Unfortunately, the ECCB
organizers did approve our proposal. I will now organize a smaller
(Swiss) workshop in fall which will be open to everybody. I'll keep the
list posted as soon as it has been finalized.
Nevertheless, I hope we can create an even better community and I will
make any effort to take part in any upcoming Galaxy conference calls.

Hi everyone -
Here at the University of Iowa we are working on deploying Galaxy
locally for campus wide access. I am interested in forming a community
of other institutions trying to deploy Galaxy locally and mange/operate
it on a broad level. Is anyone else? If there is enough interest,
possibly we could have a community conference call every other month to
have an open discussion on how we are all deploying galaxy,
customizations we are making, problems we are encountering, bugs, and
any add-on operations management for galaxy being developed, etc.
Would love to hear from others operating Galaxy or in process of
standing up a local deployment.
