GCC 2017 has ended
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) is being held in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June.  GCC2017 will include keynotes and accepted talks, poster sessions, demos, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2017 to present your work and to learn from others.

The full printed program is also available.

Galaxy tools are a first class object in Galaxy and virtually any tool that can be run from the command line or has some kind of API can be integrated into Galaxy.

The ability to seamlessly and easily integrate tools into Galaxy spawned a large community of Galaxy tool developers and a large suite of programs and services around Galaxy tool development. The Galaxy Tool Shed (https://usegalaxy.org/toolshed) is an App Store for Galaxy tools, Cargo Port is a package mirror to make software location sustainable and Planemo is the Galaxy Tool development kit, to name a few.

The Intergalactic Utilities Commission (IUC) was founded in 2012 as a community group to define standards, to develop best-practices, to maintain tools and the services we have built as a community. The IUC is actively supporting all Galaxy tool developers and is maintaining high-quality training material to provide training events worldwide.

In this talk we will highlight the achievements of the IUC community since the last year. We will update the community on our on-going effort in shifting our dependency stack to BioConda and BioContainers, 3 new community members and our regular Contribution fests that we organised since last GCC. Moreover, we would like to talk about our plans for next year and invite everyone to join our ranks to shape the future of the Galaxy tool community.
