About the Event
Data scientists, software engineers and educators working in data-intensive science are invited to join the first-ever international Galaxy Community Conference (GCC) in Australia.
The GCC is an annual conference focused on the use and development of the Galaxy platform for data-intensive biomedical research. It brings together scientists, software developers and trainers of Galaxy from a variety of disciplines to share their experiences, knowledge and skills.
At the conference, there will be opportunities to:
- learn about data analysis and methods
- disseminate your software to thousands of users
- present in-gross work and get feedback from the community
- attend a variety of training sessions on topics ranging from data analysis to systems administration
- connect with a friendly group of researchers, developers and educators from around the world.
The first 4 days of the conference will feature:
- accepted and invited talks
- poster, demo or sponsor sessions
- Birds of a Feather sessions.
These will be followed by a 3-day CollaborationFest (CoFest), where software engineers, bioinformaticians, students, researchers and trainers can collaborate on and extend open-source bioinformatics tools, ecosystems and communities.
Galaxy is an open-source platform for FAIR data analysis that enables users to:
- use tools from various domains through its graphical web interface
- run code in interactive environments along with other tools or workflows
- manage data by sharing and publishing results, workflows, and visualizations
- ensure reproducibility by capturing the necessary information to repeat and understand data analyses.
Galaxy is supported by Bioplatforms Australia and the ARDC in Australia.
