Please note that registration is now open for the Train-the-trainer
workshop "Using clouds and VMs in bioinformatics training", which takes
place at CSC in Finland 23.-25.5. This workshop introduces several cloud
platforms from different countries, and bioinformatics trainers will gain
hands-on experience in running VM images and Docker containers in them. The
dialogue with bioinformatics trainers also allows infrastructure providers
to gain valuable knowledge on the special needs that bioinformatics
training poses. For more information about the program and practicalities,
The workshop is open for any bioinformatics trainer, so please feel free to
distribute the information in your country. Places are filled in
registration order and the registration can close earlier than 1.5.2016 if
the workshop gets full. Should you have any questions regarding the
workshop, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Wishing you a chocolateful Easter,

it could be a very good route to bring our materials to the those communit
It is a channel that could be very useful for GOBLET.

Dear ISCB Education Committee Members:
The International Society for Computational Biology is working to
facilitate the offering of bioinformatics and computational biology
tutorials at the meetings of other professional societies.
We are putting together a list of tutorial topics to share with the other
I invite you to send brief descriptions of tutorials that you’d be willing
to offer in the general area of bioinformatics and computational biology
education and training across the life sciences, including bioinformatics
education and training resources and experiences; development of education
programs, courses, & curricula; and teaching tools & methods.

Dear Sarah and Gabry,
I would like to confirm that the Galaxy Training Network is interested in
participating in, and would like to send one or more people to this
hackathon in April. We don't know who yet, but metagenomics is a key
concern for the Galaxy community. (And we are holding a Metagenomics tools
and workflows hack next week.)
Do you need anything else from us at this time?
