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.

The life science community has heterogeneous needs in terms of bioinformatics resources, software and services. It needs turnkey work environments, called appliances, and will benefits from an easy maintenance of such appliances. The French Institute of Bioinformatics (IFB) developed an appliance to easily deploy a Galaxy portal instance in IFB cloud, addressing the need of punctual analysis of potentially large set of biological data.

The project Cyclone H2020 set a use case on "Shared environment between cloud Galaxy portals" focusing on one-click deployment, secure authentification, and sharing workflows, data and histories.
The appliances answering the use case leverage docker images of Björn Grüning or related flavors, it proposes a one-click deployment from Biosphere with Slipstream technology (multi-cloud application management platform), and secured authentification based on the EduGAIN identity. This authentification is used for all access to the virtual machines (no ssh key needed). Note that user can grant several users in this Galaxy instance. 
Ongoing work includes sharing data and accessing to mutualised referenced data in persistent work environment.

The main use case considers a first bioinformatician who customizes the appliance to adjust configuration and add tools from yaml file edition, and users who use the customized appliance to conduct their analysis with various need of computation resources.

This solution differs from common usage of Galaxy instance in proposing to the user to deploy an disposable appliance with computational resources tailored to the analysis needs. It is particulary adapted to tutorial sessions and on demand analysis.
