GCC2019 Early Registration Ends This Friday

Hello All,

An update on the 2019 Galaxy Community Conference:

  1. A (final) reminder that early registration for the 2019 Galaxy Community Conference ends this Friday night , 17 May, at midnight Freiburg time (CEST / GMT +2). After that registration goes up by ~ 60%. So, register this week!
  2. All accepted speakers have been notified and talks are being added to the schedule as presenters confirm. There were far more talk submissions this year than in any previous year and that is reflected in the breadth and quality of the accepted talks.
  3. Poster and demo submission is still open! However, space will fill up and when it’s gone, it’s gone. Got something to present? Submit it soon .

We hope to see you in Freiburg!

GCC2019 Organizers

2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019)
1-8 July, Freiburg, Germany

GCC2019 will be held 1-8 July in Freiburg, Germany. The tenth GCC will have many familiar features from earlier years, including accepted and lightning talks, posters and demos, birds-of-a-feather gatherings (BoFs), training, and a CollaborationFest. 2019 also brings the most significant conference program update in several years:

  • some training will be integrated with the main conference,
  • three days of conference instead of two,
  • several parallel sessions,
  • and a strong emphasis on organizing content by domain.

GCC2019, like every GCC before it, is built around community . Training topics are nominated, selected, and presented by the community. Presentations will feature the full spectrum of Galaxy applications, enhancements and deployments from the community as well.

If you are working in data intensive life science research then there will not be a better place to share your work, learn from others, and find new collaborators.


Early registration starts at €49/day for students and postdocs, and €79 / day for other academics and non-profit researchers. Early registration ends 17 May, when rates go up by 60%. So, register early.

Present your work!

Abstract submission for demos and posters is now open. If you work in data-intensive life science (or in other fields using Galaxy) then please consider presenting your work at GCC2019. This is an ideal chance to present to 200+ researchers, all addressing common challenges in data intensive science.

Submit an abstract (or two) now!
