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.

CollaborationFest (CoFest) Day 2

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This three day event gathers community members who are interested in contributing to Galaxy's code base, available tool set, documentation, training materials, and anywhere else that expands or improves the Galaxy ecosystem.  You can register for 1, 2 or 3 days of the CoFest.

CoFest participants will coalesce around shared interests and common challenges related to those interests. These clusters form before, at the beginning of, and throughout CollaborationFest and will be fluid and highly interactive with each other.

Getting There
Please gather in the hotel lobby at 8:30 every morning to walk over together. The CoFest will be in the Walter Library on the University of Minnesota East Bank campus. We'll walk through the West Bank campus, across the Mississippi River and then up the Northrup Mall. It's a pretty walk. See the attached map or online, if you miss the group walking over.


Our goals are to expand the contributor community and the Galaxy Ecosystem.

That's a short sentence, but it is very deliberately worded:

  • Our first goal is to expand the contributor community.  This CoFest is first and foremost about welcoming new contributors and helping you learn the resources and meet the people that will help you contribute. 
  • The second goal is to expand the Galaxy Ecosystem. Not just the code, but the whole ecosystem. That includes training, tools, best practice workflows, documentation, test cases, translations, infrastructure, and yes, even code.
This is a CollaborationFest. Not a hackathon, not a codefest, but a CollaborationFest.

Welcome aboard.

I'm fairly new to Galaxy and the world of Bioinformatics. Teach me something new!Additionally, I'm a mom, lifelong learner, both a cat and dog person, who loves to read and be outside. Let's chat about common interests :)
