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.

Arts & Crafts BoF

GCC sure can be overwhelming sometimes! This BoF is a quiet place to do some stress free, science related, arts and crafts.

Hack the Universe and Capture the Flag!

Saskia and Eric have also put together a Capture the Flag (CTF) event for GCC2017.  Hack the Universe is a completion where you attempt to hack into a Galaxy instance and learn about Galaxy, Galaxy Administration, vulnerabilities, and good security practices.  The CTF competition will start on the first night of GCC2017, and run for a week after.

Anyone! We strongly recommend that you form teams involving at least one bioinformatician or biologist, and one computer person. Get out there, make new friends!

Interested?  See https://ctf.galaxians.org/ for more and visit Saskia and Eric at the Arts & Crafts BoF.    

If you are interested in participating in this BoF, create a Sched login (if you don't already have one), and add this BoF to your personal schedule.

And, if you are interested in proposing a BoF, please submit your idea here and we'll add it to the schedule.
