Registration is capped this year at 250 participants, *and we expect to hit that limit*.

You can also book affordable conference housing at the same time you register. See the conference Logistics pagehttps://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2014/Logisticsfor details on this and other housing options.
*Abstract submission https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Events/GCC2014/Abstracts* for both oral presentations and posters is also open. Abstract submission for oral presentations closes April 4, while poster submission closes April 25. Poster authors will be notified of acceptance status within two weeks of submission, while presentation authors will be notified no later than May2. *Please consider presenting your work. If you are dealing with big biological data, then this meeting wants to hear about your work.*
