2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017)
26-30 June 2017
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference will bring together several hundred researchers working in and supporting data intensive life science research. There is no better place to share your work and learn from others that are addressing diverse questions and facing common challenges in data intensive biology. GCC participants work across the tree of life, come from around the world, and represent universities, research organizations, industry, medical schools and research hospitals.
GCC2017 will be in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June and will feature 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. GCC2017 also includes data and coding hackathons, and two days of training covering 16 different topics. GCC2017 will be held at Le Corum Conference Centre in the heart of Montpellier, just 10km from the Mediterranean.
Abstract submission is now open. If you work in or support data intensive life science research then GCC2017 is an ideal opportunity to present your work. The deadline for oral presentations is Apr 15 (23:59 Paris local time), and posters and computer demonstration submission closes on May 27 (23:59 Paris local time). The Lightning talk submission deadline is June 23 (23:59 Paris time).
Early registration is also open and starts at less than 55€ / day for post-docs and students. You can also book low cost conference housing when you register. Travel fellowships are being offered by the Galaxy Community Fund for early career researchers that are travelling from afar.
Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical analysis used by tens of thousands of researchers around the world. It supports ad hoc exploration and analysis through scalable and repeatable data analysis pipelines for large research studies. Galaxy is available in over 90 free and publicly accessible web servers, on commercial and national cloud infrastructures, and is locally installed at hundreds, if not thousands, of research organisations around the world.
We hope to see you this summer in Montpellier!
