GCC2022 has ended
The 2022 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2022) brings together hundreds of researchers, trainers, tool developers, software engineers, and  computational infrastructure providers, all addressing common challenges in data intensive science using the Galaxy data integration and analysis platform.

  • July 17-23, 2022
  • University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

This annual gathering of the Galaxy community includes training, talks, posters, demos, Birds of a Feather meetups, and many other opportunities for collaboration and networking. GCC2022 will be an in-person meeting with limited support for remote attendees. There is no better event than GCC2022 to share your work and learn form others working in data-intensive science.

​Last year, we replaced the system powering the Galaxy Community Hub with a modern static site generator. The new Hub is author-friendly, fast, and built on Vue.js, allowing easy development of custom components and integration with Galaxy's Vue frontend.

But the Hub at galaxyproject.org is not the only Galaxy community website. Galaxy communities and Galaxy servers around the world have their own homes on the web. These websites are regional, but much of their content is relevant to a global audience. This leads to a duplication of effort: many features are reinvented and much content (e.g. events, articles) is posted on multiple sites. In order to reduce this duplication and make galaxyproject.org a truly global hub for the entire Galaxy community, we developed a system to host every Galaxy community under a single domain. Now, anyone can cross-post an event to any of the regional groups by simply adding a tag. Community leaders can still accept or reject submissions with the commonly agreed-upon Github-based review process. Every community automatically gets its own homepage and news feed, and as many content pages as they'd like. The system is easily expandable: new communities can be added with an edit to a single configuration file. This gives an extremely low-overhead way for a community to establish their home on the web. In addition to the US, we currently have preliminary support for the EU region and seven EU subregions.

Our new system allows sharing Galaxy news and events across the global community while also providing each region their own exclusive home, all under the same roof. This means we get a central place for Galaxy information, forging closer ties between communities, while still providing for their independence.
