I'd like to send a specific invitation to the Galaxy training community to nominate topics and yourself (and your friends!) as an instructor for the GCC2015 Training Day. We can't yet guarantee this for 2015, but I can say that instructors at the 3 previous GCC Training Days received full complementary registrations for all parts of the conference.
The instructors and the content you present are what make the Training Days the successes they are. Please give this some thought.

GCC2015 Training Day http://gcc2015.tsl.ac.uk/training-day/ topics are nominated by you http://bit.ly/gcc2015tdnom, the Galaxy Community. Please take a few minutes to nominate a topic. Any topic of interest to the Galaxy Community can be nominated and you are encouraged to nominate more than one. If you are looking for ideas, see the topics nominated in 2013 http://bit.ly/1i2j1gN and 2014 http://bit.ly/1s6NtMN, and the Events https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events and the Events Archives https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/Archive pages.
Nominated topics will be published on the Training Day http://gcc2015.tsl.ac.uk/training-day/ page as they come in. *Nominations close 6 January*. Topics will be compiled into a uniform list by the GCC2015 Organising Committee http://gcc2015.tsl.ac.uk/organisers, and topics will be voted on by the Galaxy Community 12-23 January.
Topics will then be selected and scheduled based on topic interest, and the organisers' ability to confirm instructors for each session. Some very popular sessions may be scheduled more than once. The final schedule will be posted before registration opens.
