My attempt to post this announcement to the SFBI mailing list were rejected without explanation. However, that list does accept conference announcements for events that are not in France, and it is the best way to reach the French bioinformatics community.
Would someone on this list be willing to translate this announcement into French and submit it to bioinfo? Being in French is no guarantee that the posting will be accepted, but we can hope.
Also, if anyone has any ideas how to reach other bioinformatics communities in Europe, please send them to me.

Dear Galaxy-France Community,
We are pleased to announce that early registrationhttp://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013/Register and paper and poster abstract submissionhttp://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013/Abstracts are now open for the 2013 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2013)http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013 . GCC2013 will be held 30 June through July 2 in Oslo Norway, at the University of Oslo http://uio.no/.
GCC2013 http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013 is an opportunity to participate in two full days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, keynotes, lightning talks and breakouts, all about high-throughput biology and the tools that support it. The conference also includes a Training Dayhttp://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013/TrainingDay for the second year in a row, this year with more in-depth topic coverage, more concurrent sessions, and more topics.
If you are a biologist or bioinformatician performing or enabling high-throughput biological research, then please consider attending. GCC2013 is aimed at:
- Bioinformatics tool developers and data providers
- Workflow developers and power bioinformatics users
- Sequencing and Bioinformatics core staff
- Data archival and analysis reproducibility specialists
- *saves up to 75% off regular registration costs,* and is very
affordable, with combined registration (Training Dayhttp://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2013/TrainingDay + main meeting) starting at ~ €95 for post-docs and students. Registering early also assures you a spot in the Training Day workshops you want to attend. Once a Training Day session becomes full, it will be closed to new registrations. Early registration closes 24 May.
- for oral presentations closes 12 April, and for posters on 3 May.
Please consider presenting your work. If you are working with big biological data, then the people at this meeting want to hear about your work.
Thanks, and hope to see you in Oslo!
