The European Galaxy Days will be held from the 4th to 7th October 2022 in Freiburg, Germany. This 4-day gathering will be similar to the events we held in 2018, 2016, 2014, and 2012. The first two days will give an overview of the current state of the Galaxy framework with several talks, demonstrations and Birds of a Feather sessions. As part of a CoFest, the second two days offer the opportunity to continue the discussions, to code and hack as well as enjoy the Galaxy community.
