2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017)
26-30 June 2017
The Galaxy Community Conference (GCC) https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/ brings together researchers working in and supporting data intensive life science research. There is no better place to share your work and learn from others that are addressing diverse questions and facing common challenges in data intensive biology. GCC participants work across the tree of life, around the world, and represent universities, research organizations, industry, medical schools and research hospitals.
GCC2017 will be in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June and features two days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, lightning talks, computer demos, keynotes, and birds-of-a-feather meetups https://gcc2017.sched.com/overview/type/Conference, all about data-intensive biology and the tools that support it. GCC2017 also features data and coding hackathons https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/hackathon, and two days of training https://gcc2017.sched.com/overview/type/Training covering 16 different topics. 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/resource/page/id/2, just 10km from the Mediterranean.
Registration closes 16 June https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/registration. Costs start at 75€ per day for postdocs and students.
If you work in data intensive life science research then GCC2017 is an ideal opportunity to present your work. Lightning talk https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/submit and birds-of-a-feather https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdRCs97OWt47qmMxWZAtSV3TTLJ24IhW0m2lHGPLiqJU0Xkzw/viewform submission are still open, and there is limited space available for late poster and computer demo submissions https://gcc2017.sciencesconf.org/page/submit.
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 public and national cloud infrastructures, and is locally installed at hundreds, if not thousands, of research organisations around the world.
We hope to see you in Montpellier!
