*2016 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2016)*

    *gcc2016.iu.edu <http://gcc2016.iu.edu/>*

    June 25 - 29, 2016

    *Indiana University*

    Bloomington, Indiana

    United States

The *2016 Galaxy Community Conference *(*GCC2016*, *gcc2016.iu.edu
<http://gcc2016.iu.edu/>*) features two days of presentations, discussions,
poster sessions, lightning talks, computer demos, keynotes, and
birds-of-a-feather meetups, *all about data-intensive biology and the tools
that support it*. Keynote speaker Yoav Gilad
<http://genes.uchicago.edu/directory/yoav-gilad-phd/>, a professor of human
genetics at the University of Chicago, will kick-start the main conference
with a discussion on the analysis of large gene regulatory data sets.
Preconference events include data
<https://gcc2016.iu.edu/hacks/hacks-data.php> and coding
<https://gcc2016.iu.edu/hacks/hacks-coding.php> hackathons
<https://gcc2016.iu.edu/hacks/index.php>, and *two days of training*
<https://gcc16.sched.org/overview/type/Training+%E2%80%94+Any> in five
concurrent tracks covering 26 topics.

*GCC2016 <https://gcc2016.iu.edu/index.php>* will be held at *Indiana
University <http://indiana.edu/>* in Bloomington, Indiana, June 25-29,
2016.  Since it started seven years ago, GCC has been a well-attended
gathering of biologists, genome researchers, bioinformaticians, and others
in data-intensive biomedical research around the world.

Galaxy <https://galaxyproject.org/> is an open, web-based platform for
data-intensive biomedical research and enables easy interactive analysis
through the web on arbitrarily large data sets. The Galaxy framework is a
major resource in achieving key research goals within the biological field.
It provides next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools and workflows for
short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, variant analysis,
visualization, and support for Galaxy in the cloud. There are hundreds of
local installs, and *over 80 publicly accessible servers
<https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/PublicGalaxyServers>* around the world.

*Abstract submission <https://gcc2016.iu.edu/abstracts/index.php>** for
oral presentations closes April 8. *Abstract submission for posters and
computer demonstrations closes May 20.

*Early registration <https://gcc2016.iu.edu/registration/index.php>* is now
open. Registration starts at less than $45/day for post-docs and
students. Registering early assures you a place at the conference and also
a spot in the training workshops
<https://gcc16.sched.org/overview/type/Training+%E2%80%94+Any> you want to
attend. You can also *book conference housing
<https://gcc2016.iu.edu/location/index.php>* when you register. *Registration
and lodging scholarships
<https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/News/GCC2016Scholarships>* are available
for attendees from underrepresented groups and developing countries.

Thanks, and we hope to see you in Bloomington!

The *GCC2016 Exec <https://gcc2016.iu.edu/organizers/index.php>*
