The 2011 Galaxy Community Conference was held 25-26 May, at the Conference Centre De Werelt in Lunteren, The Netherlands. The conference featured two full days of presentations and discussion on extending Galaxy to use new tools and data sources, deploying Galaxy locally, and best practices for using Galaxy to further your research. The event drew almost 150 participants from 19 countries on six continents. The conference was co-organized and hosted by the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC).
