GCC2021

2021 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2021) will be held 28 June through July 10, and will be virtual, affordable, and globally accessible.

GCC2021 features a 3 day conference, 6-8 July, with talks, Q&A, posters, demos, bird-of-a-feather, and plenty of networking. All meeting events will be repeated twice daily, 9 hours apart, making this event accessible to the world. All events, except for talks will be live in both time slots. GCC2021 is preceded by a week of training, and is followed by a multi-day CoFest, where the community gathers to improve the Galaxy ecosystem, and to expand the community of Galaxy contributors.

Registration is Open, and it is Very Affordable!

The move to virtual has allowed the conference to slash registration rates to a fraction of what an in-person event would cost. The virtual format also makes the conference globally accessible.

Registration rates depend on where you are in your career, and where you are in the world.

Please note: VAT is not included in these prices. VAT will be added at registration time.
