The poster presentation abstract deadline is 3 May. 

And in case you missed the announcement about GIgaScience and GCC2013 talks:

We are pleased to announce that talks presented at the 2013 Galaxy Community conference will be eligible for consideration to be published in the journal GigaScience and that BGI will generously cover the article processing fees for these articles.  See the announcement for details.

Dear Galaxy Community, 

We are pleased to announce that early registration and paper and poster abstract submission are now open for the 2013 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2013).  GCC2013 will be held 30 June through July 2 in Oslo Norway, at the University of Oslo.

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 Day 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

Early registration saves up to 75% off regular registration costs, and is very affordable, with combined registration (Training Day + 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. 

Abstract submission 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!

The GCC2013 Organizing Committee
