Galaxy Community Conference Registration ends this Friday, June 6

Dave Clements-3
Hello all,

First, that's not true.  Affordable registration closes this Friday.  After that late registration is still open, but that is hard to classify as affordable.

So, if a conference that is all about high-throughput biology interests you, then please take a look at GCC2014 (  The full program is posted, and includes
  • Training Day - 15 sessions on 12 topics in 5 parallel tracks with topics ranging from Visualizing NGS data to Galaxy installation and administration
  • 26 talks including a keynote by Steven Salzberg, and 25 other talks by researchers and industry leaders
  • 25 Posters - and counting - we still have space for a few more
  • Lightning Talks - Present your rsesarch in two fast paced sessions.
  • Birds-of-a-Feather - Gather with other researchers with common interests and challenges (and propose one for your own area of interest)
Please do let me know if you have any questions.  We would love to see you in Baltimore.

2014 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2014)
    June 30 - July 2, 2014
    Baltimore, Maryland, United States


The 2014 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2014 features two full days of presentations, discussions, poster sessions, lightning talks and birds-of-a-feather, all about data-intensive biology and the tools that support it.  GCC2014 also includes a Training Day for the third year in a row, this year with five concurrent tracks, and in-depth coverage of thirteen different topics.

GCC2014 will be held at the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University, in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, from June 30 through July 2, 2014. 

Galaxy is an easily extensible data integration and analysis platform for life sciences research that supports hundreds of bioinformatics analysis tools. Galaxy is open-source and can be locally installed or run on the cloud.  There are hundreds of local installs, and over 50 publicly accessible servers around the world.  

Early registration is now open.  Early combined registration (Training Day + main meeting) starts at $140 for post-docs and students. Registration is capped this year at 250 participants, and we expect to hit that limit. Registering early assures you a place at the conference and also a spot in the Training Day workshops you want to attend.

You can also book affordable conference housing at the same time you register. See the conference Logistics page for details on this and other housing options.

Abstract submission for both oral presentations and posters is also open.  Abstract submission for oral presentations closes April 4, and poster submission closes April 25.  The GigaScience "Galaxy: Data Intensive and Reproducible Research" series (announced for GCC2013) is continuing to take submissions for this year's meeting and beyond.  BGI is also continuing to cover the article processing charges until the end of the year, and for more information see their latest update.  Please consider presenting your work.

Thanks, and hope to see you in Baltimore!
