The 2016 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2016gcc2016.iu.edu) features two days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, lightning talks, computer demos, keynotes, and birds-of-a-feather meetups, all about data-intensive biology and the tools that support it. Keynote speaker Yoav Gilad, a professor of human genetics at the University of Chicago, will kick-start the main conference with a discussion on the analysis of large gene regulatory data sets. Preconference events include data and coding hackathons, and two days of training in five concurrent tracks covering 26 topics.

 

GCC2016 will be held at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, June 25-29, 2016.  Since it started seven years ago, GCC has been a well-attended gathering of biologists, genome researchers, bioinformaticians, and others in data-intensive biomedical research around the world.

 

Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical research and enables easy interactive analysis through the web on arbitrarily large data sets. The Galaxy framework is a major resource in achieving key research goals within the biological field. It provides next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools and workflows for short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, variant analysis, visualization, and support for Galaxy in the cloud. There are hundreds of local installs, and over 80 publicly accessible servers around the world.  


Abstract submission for oral presentations closes March 25. Abstract submission for posters and computer demonstrations closes May 20.


Early registration is now open. Registration starts at less than $45/day for post-docs and students. Registering early assures you a place at the conference and also a spot in the training workshops you want to attend. You can also book conference housing when you register. Registration and lodging scholarships are available for attendees from underrepresented groups and developing countries.


Thanks, and we hope to see you in Bloomington!


The GCC2016 Exec
