Hello all,

We are pleased to announce that early registration for the 2012 Galaxy
Community Conference (GCC2012, http://galaxyproject.org/GCC2012) is
now open. GCC2012 will be held July 25-27, at the UIC Forum, in
Chicago, Illinois. The conference will feature two full days of
presentations, discussions, lightning talks, and breakouts. We have
also added a new full day of training this year, featuring 3 parallel
tracks with four workshops each, covering seven different topics.

The Galaxy Community Conference is for:
* Sequencing core facility staff
* Bioinformatics core staff
* Bioinformatics tool and workflow developers
* Bioinformatics focused principal investigators and researchers
* Data producers
* Power bioinformatics users

This event is about integrating, analyzing, and sharing the diverse
and very large datasets that are now typical in biomedical research.
GCC2012 is an opportunity to share best practices with, and learn
from, a large community of researchers and support staff who are
facing the challenges of data-intensive biology.  Galaxy is an open
web-based platform for data intensive biomedical research
(http://galaxyproject.org) that is widely used and deployed at
research organizations of all sizes and around the world.

Registration is very affordable, especially for post-docs and
students. You can can save an additional 40% by registering on or
before June 11.

Conference lodging can also be booked. Low-cost rooms have been
reserved on the UIC campus. You can also stay at the official
conference hotel, at a substantial discount arranged for conference
attendees. There are a limited rooms available in both, and you are
encouraged to register early, if you would like to take advantage of

Abstract submission is also open, from now through April 16. Abstract
submissions on any topic of interest to the Galaxy community are
