During 5-8th of June, members of the European Galaxy team travelled to Dublin to join the ELIXIR All Hands meeting 2023. Some of us travelled by plane, but Björn and Wolfgang took the ferry:

In Dublin, we joined other colleagues from ELIXIR-DE

All over the 4 days of the meeting, there was a broad presence of Galaxy across the different workshops, symposia, plenary sessions, and posters. We will highlight in this post some of this presence.


Day 1 - June 5

On the first day, Wolfgang gave the talk Galaxy - Galaxy workflows for taking viral genomic surveillance beyond SARS-CoV-2, in the Biodiversity, Food Security and Pathogens mini-symposium.

Day 2 - June 6

On the morning of the 2nd day, Björn together with Nicola Soranzo ran the workshop Scaling user support: Galaxy from a service perspective.

In the afternoon, Björn participated in the plenary session ELIXIR’s project portfolio: where we are and where we are going, where he talked about EuroScienceGateway.

Later, during the ELIXIR as a Network of Services symposium, Bérénice talked about "Developing Galaxy as part of an international Network". In parallel in the Reproducible Analytics & Infrastructure symposium, Björn talked more about the technical aspects of the "Galaxy Analytics Ecosystem"
