1. *We have moved our registration deadline to June 22*. Register by the end of Wednesday and save 25% or $200 on your registration. 2. *Hotel rooms can now be booked through June 30*.

You knew this right? PPS: We moved these dates back because a particularly bad interaction between the (spiffy!) MailChimp service we have been using for GCC2022, and Galaxy's (only semi-functional!) MailMan3 server caused no email to be delivered to several mailing lists since the end of April. So, now is your chance. Please do register by Wednesday.
