2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019)

Freiburg, Germany, 1-6 July 2019

GCC2019 was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-6 July. Like previous Galaxy Community Conferences, GCC2019 it featured invited talks, accepted talks, posters and demos, birds-of-a-feather (BoF) gatherings, multiple days of collaborative work, and plenty of opportunities to network with your fellow data-intensive researchers and practitioners. If you are working in data-intensive life science, there was no better place to be.


Freiburg Germany

Freiburg is on the edge of the Black Forest, and is famous for its architecture, cobblestone streets and historic districts, and is home to one of Germany's oldest universities (and our host)! Freiburg is in the Baden wine-growing region and is the sunniest city in Germany.

GCC2019 will be held at Konzerthaus Freiburg in central Freiburg, adjacent to the Freiburg train station.
