INCOB (and GOBLET) ran last week in Jakarta. Harpreet was able to make it,
and was actually pretty prominent, moderating several sessions and
presenting a talk. Galaxy was also pretty prominent at both GOBLET and
INCOB. Here's the report.
QFAB (Gareth's organization) and the Galaxy Training Network both renewed
our *GOBLET *memberships and both groups expect to have a more prominent
role in the coming year. Not yet sure what form that involvement will take.
There were actually 4 Galaxy-related events on the program at INCOB. (There
was an EpiMOLAS <https://galaxyproject.org/use/docmethyl/>
talk that I had
missed.) The talk by Gareth, the workshop (almost all Simon), and the
breakout (Dave, Gareth, Nuwan, Farhan Sjaugi (Malaysia), Harpreet, and
Asif) were all successes (in my not so humble opinion). There was a great
deal of interest in Galaxy, and in regional Galaxies especially. We are
likely to see Galaxy ASEAN and Galaxy Korea communities come out of INCOB
Harpreet had extensive conversations with Simon, Dave, Gareth, and Nuwan.
For my part, I promised to absolutely support events and community efforts
in India in any way that I and the US team can.
Gareth, Nuwan, Simon *and especially Harpreet*: It would be great to hear
what your impressions were.
