- A (final) reminder that early registration for the 2019 Galaxy
Community Conference ENDS THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, 17 May, at
midnight Freiburg time (CEST / GMT +2). After that registration
goes up by ~ 60%. So, register this week!
https://galaxyproject.org/events/gcc2019/registration/ - All accepted speakers have been notified and talks are being
added to the schedule as presenters confirm. There were far
more talk submissions this year than in any previous year and that
is reflected in the breadth and quality of the accepted talks.
https://gcc2019.sched.com/ - Poster and demo submission is still open! However, space *will*
fill up and when it's gone, it's gone. Got something to present?
Submit it *soon*.
We hope to see you in Freiburg!
Dave C on behalf of the GCC2019 Organizers
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) will be held 1-8 July
in Freiburg, Germany. GCC brings together hundreds of faculty,
clinicians, researchers, and students, all working in and supporting
data intensive science that is accessible, sharable and reproducible.
GCC2019 features oral presentations, lightning talks, posters, demos,
birds-of-a-feather gatherings (BoFs), training, a CollaborationFest,
and plenty of opportunities for networking.
Presentations will cover the full spectrum of Galaxy applications,
enhancements and deployments. If you are working in data intensive
science then GCC2019 is an ideal conference for sharing your work,
learning from others, and finding new collaborators.
Early registration starts at €49/day for students and postdocs, and
€79 / day for other academics and non-profit researchers. Childcare
is available and travel fellowships are available as well. Early
registration ends 17 May, when rates go up by 60%. So, register early.
Galaxy (https://galaxyproject.org/) is a platform for data integration
and analysis in the life sciences. It enables researchers to build,
run, share, and repeat their own complex computational analyses using
only a web browser and without having to first learn system
administration and command line interfaces.
The Galaxy Project is driven by a vibrant community who publish
workflows and analyses, wrap new tools, maintain and enhance the
source code, provide support, and write documentation and training
materials. Galaxy is open-source and freely available, and is deployed
in hundreds of organizations, running on everything from laptops
through supercomputers to public and private clouds. Over 150 of these
platforms are publicly available and can be used with little or no
setup. Thousands of tools have been ported to Galaxy ("wrapped") and
are deployable from the Galaxy Tool Shed. Galaxy was developed to
support life science research, but the software is domain agnostic and
is now used in domains as diverse as natural language processing,
constructive solid geometry, and social science.
