The Galactic Summer of ’15

Summer 2015 starts not only with wind and rain but also with 70 new publications involving Galaxy (check it out on the official Galaxy Project website). The “hot” months of the year are filled with exciting science and events.

Galactic Conferencing is going to happen in July

The Galaxy Community Conference 2015 hosted at The Sainsbury Laboratory in Norwich is approaching with huge steps. In less than two months time Galaxy users from all over the world will meet, mix, and mingle; present, listen to, discuss, and, hopefully, develop and implement new ideas. To achieve that GCC 2015 offers two training days (Training SunDay and Training Day on the 5th and 6th July, with Training SunDay already booked out!) and two integrated Hackathons for Galaxy Coders and Data Wranglers (e.g. Workflow Developers and Galaxy Users). The general meeting will take place on the 7th and 8th July. The early bird registration deadline has now passed but you can still register, so if you have not already done so, visit the official GCC 2015 website. It is also possible to submit late poster and even late oral abstracts!

What else is going on this summer?

There will be a number of events happening around GCC 2015 (for a reminder, have a look here.)

On the 18th June there will be another GalaxyAdmins meeting. Peter Briggs of the University of Manchester will speak on Galactic Engineering: Experiences deploying Galaxy and developing tools within the Bioinformatics Core Facility at the University of Manchester. Furthermore, GalaxyAdmins will have an in-person meetup at GCC2015.
