GCC2021 will be virtual, global and affordable.

The 2021 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2021 has moved to a virtual format. See [the announcement](link to news item on VIB) for more information. We will miss gathering in person, but this does mean we can do some things we can’t at an in person event.

  • GCC2021 events will be held twice, once in their original Ghent time zone (GCC EMEA3), and again 8 hours later in the Americas (GCC Americas).
  • Registration rates will be a fraction of the cost of an in person event, and will include a significant discount for students and researchers based in the developing world.

This arrangement makes GCC2021 globally accessible, in any time zone, and in every country.

GCC brings together hundreds of faculty, clinicians, researchers, and students, all working in and supporting data intensive science that is accessible, sharable and reproducible.

GCC2021 features

  • Training for researchers, developers and administrators
  • Oral presentations, lightning talks
  • Poster and demo sessions
  • Collaborative work
  • Ample opportunity for networking

Presentations will cover the full spectrum of Galaxy applications, enhancements and deployments. If you are working in data intensive science (life sciences and beyond) then GCC2021 is an ideal conference for sharing your work, learning from others, and finding new collaborators.

About Galaxy

Galaxy is a platform for data integration and analysis in data intensive research. It enables researchers to build, run, share, and repeat their own complex computational analyses using only a web browser and without having to first learn system administration and command line interfaces.

The Galaxy Project is driven by a vibrant community who publish workflows and analyses, wrap new tools, maintain and enhance the source code, provide support, and write documentation and training materials. Galaxy is open-source and freely available, and is deployed in hundreds of organizations, running on everything from laptops through supercomputers to public and private clouds. Galaxy was developed to support life science research, but the software is domain agnostic and is now used in domains as diverse as natural language processing, constructive solid geometry, and social science.
