University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
The 2022 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2022) will bring 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.
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. There is no better event to share your work and learn form others working in data-intensive science.
Share your work! There is no better place than GCC2022 to share your progress and challenges in doing and supporting data-intensive science. GCC2022 is soliciting long talks, lightning talks, poster presentations, and demo presentations. See the Abstracts page for details.
The University of Minnesota is located in the heart of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota. The two downtowns are less than 10 miles apart and are connected by rapid transit. The Twin Cities offer a vibrant cultural, music, sports, and entertainment scene, with great access to the outdoors. The Twin Cites are one of the most livable metro areas in the United States.

For over 30 years the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI) has been proudly serving and collaborating with the University of Minnesota research and scholarly community and external partners across all areas of human inquiry. MSI works to provide state-of-the-art compute and storage solutions to meet new demands and to serve as a nexus for meaningful collaborations. MSI is pleased to host GCC2022.
GalaxyP Project is a multi-omics informatics platform. The focus of the platform is integrative analysis of genomics, transcriptomics and mass spectrometry-based proteomics and metabolomics data. Galaxy-P is being actively developed by the Griffin research group at the University of Minnesota in collaboration with the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute. Galaxy-P is delighted to finally bring GCC to Minnesota.
Getting here is easy. The Twin Cities are served by the Minneapolis St Paul Airport (MSP), with direct flights from 44 states, Canada, Europe, and Mexico. It is also a short flight (or a scenic drive) from Madison, Wisconsin, the site of ISMB and BOSC 2022 (which is just before GCC). The conference meeting area is served by rapid public transit. Lodging will be available in on-campus dorms, the conference hotel, and there are also many nearby hotels. See the Travel page for details.
