There are three things going on that are of general interest to the Galaxy and GMOD communities, and that have some urgency to them.
BCC2020 Schedule Structure
The Bioinformatics Community Conference (BCC2020) will be held in July, in Toronto, right after ISMB in Montréal. This event brings together the BOSC and Galaxy communities into one gathering, similar to GCCBOSC 2018.
If you are considering attending BCC2020, then the organizers would like your input on several scheduling choices, by January 7.
BCC2020 Training Topic Nominations
The training offered at BCC2020 is determined by the community. We are now accepting nominations for training sessions. Please submit your training ideas by January 17.
2020 Galaxy Admin Training
A week long workshop on setting up your own production-grade Galaxy instance will be held in Barcelona the first week of March. Registration is now open, and is, well, pretty darn cheap too. This workshop tends to fill up quickly.
And, of course, there is a lot of other stuff going on too.
Happy Holidays, and hope to see you in the new year!
Dave C, on behalf of the BCC2020 and Galaxy Admin Training organizers
