The 2011 Galaxy Community Conference registration site is now back online.
for details. Early
registration ends May 1.
*May 24 Lodging:*
As expected, we *were not able* to secure additional hotel rooms at the
conference centre for May 24, the evening before the meeting. We encourage
people who need a room on May 24 to stay in Amsterdam that night, and then
take the train to Lunteren the next morning. There is ample time to arrive
before the 9:30am start of the meeting on the 25th. We regret the
inconvenience that this will cause for people who will not be able to stay
at the conference centre on May 24.
*May 25 and 26 Lodging:
*We *were able* to reserve additional rooms for the night of May 26. We now
have about 35 open hotel rooms reserved at the conference center on the
nights of May 25 and May 26 (the night after the meeting). *
However, we expect the rooms for May 25 to sell out, possibly in advance of
the May 1 early registration deadline. If you are planning on staying at
the conference centre, we strongly recommend that you register as soon as
possible. *Once those rooms are full, the whole centre will be full.*
Thank you all for your patience while we worked on this. I apologize for
and regret any inconvenience this has caused. As always, please let me know
if you have any questions.

The early registration deadline for the 2011 Galaxy Community Conference
has been extended by a week, from April 24 to May 1. The conference is
being held in Lunteren, the Netherlands, 25-26 May, with a special
"Introduction to Galaxy" session on the evening of May 24.
That's the good news. The bad news is that online registration has been
taken offline, starting today, until April 26 or 27. We took this step
because of unexpectedly high demand for conference centre hotel rooms on May
24 and 26. We still have ample rooms for the night of May 25,* but we are
now sold out on the other nights*. We are working with the conference
centre to increase our room allotment on May 24 and 26. We are optimistic
of getting more rooms on May 26, but we are not as hopeful about getting
additional rooms for May 24.
We will reopen registration next Tuesday or Wednesday and post an update on
the room situation, including alternatives, at that time.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for your patience,
