GCC2019 will be held 1-8 July in Freiburg, Germany. The *tenth* GCC
<https://galaxyproject.org/gcc/> will have many familiar features from
earlier years, including accepted and lightning talks, posters and demos,
birds-of-a-feather gatherings (BoFs), training, and a CollaborationFest.
2019 also brings the most significant conference program update
<https://gcc2019.sched.com/> in several years:
- some training will be integrated with the main conference,
- three days of conference instead of two,
- several parallel sessions,
- and a strong emphasis on organizing content by domain.
GCC2019, like every GCC before it, will be built around *community*.
Training topics are nominated, selected, and presented by the community.
Presentations will feature the full spectrum of Galaxy applications,
enhancements and deployments from the community as well.
If you are working in data intensive life science research then there will
not be a better place to share your work, learn from others, and find new
Abstract submission <https://galaxyproject.org/events/gcc2019/abstracts/>
for talks, lightning talks, demos and posters is now open. If you work in
data-intensive life science (or in other fields using Galaxy) then please
consider presenting your work at GCC2019. This is an ideal chance to
present to 200+ researchers, all addressing common challenges in data
intensive science. Review of oral presentations starts on 22 April, in a
little over a month.
