2nd Swiss Galaxy Workshop, Wednesday, October 1st, Bern
After the big success of the first Swiss Galaxy Workshop two years ago, we are going to organize a similar event again in fall 2014.
This workshop is aimed at Galaxy administrators and users alike. We also welcome participants who are using workflow management systems other than Galaxy and tool developers who are looking for such systems to offer their tools to a wider audience.
We would like to discuss the status of the Galaxy project, new developments, interface to other systems, extensions and best practice in reproducible research.
The workshop is part of the SyBIT Tech Day series.
## Extra Training Day and Developers Day
Prior to the workshop, we run a Galaxy training/demo Day on Tuesday September, 30th in Bern
Following the workshop, we organise a Developers Day on Thursday, October 2nd in Freiburg (Germany).
Registration is now closed. Please contact Hans-Rudolf Hotz or Björn Grüning if you want your name to be put on the waiting list. There is a good chance, we can still accommodate you.
