Voting for GCC2015 Training Day opens on Jan 19, 2015

Topics have been nominated by the Galaxy Community (see below for a short list and http://gcc2015.tsl.ac.uk/training-day/#Nomination_Voting_and_Topic_Selection for more details). The nominated topics are now being normalized in a complementary, non-overlapping set of topics, and that set of topics will be voted on by the Galaxy Community. Voting will be open 19-30 of January.

Topics will then be selected and scheduled based on community voting, and the organizers’ ability to confirm instructors for each session. Some very popular sessions may be scheduled more than once. The final schedule will be posted before registration opens.
