Hello all,

We are pleased to announce that early registration for the 2012 Galaxy
Community Conference (GCC2012, http://galaxyproject.org/GCC2012) is now
open. GCC2012 will be held July 25-27, at the UIC Forum, in Chicago,
Illinois. The conference will feature two full days of presentations,
discussions, lightning talks, and breakouts. We have also added a new full
day of training this year, featuring 3 parallel tracks with four workshops
each, covering seven to twelve different topics (please vote on topics by
Friday May 18: http://bit.ly/GCC2012TDSurvey).

The Galaxy Community Conference is for:
* Sequencing core facility staff
* Bioinformatics core staff
* Bioinformatics tool and workflow developers
* Bioinformatics focused principal investigators and researchers
* Data producers
* Power bioinformatics users

This event is about integrating, analyzing, and sharing the diverse and
very large datasets that are now typical in biomedical research. GCC2012 is
an opportunity to share best practices with, and learn from, a large
community of researchers and support staff who are facing the challenges of
data-intensive biology.  Galaxy is an open web-based platform for data
intensive biomedical research (http://galaxyproject.org) that is widely
used and deployed at research organizations of all sizes and around the

Registration is very affordable, especially for post-docs and students. *You
can can save 36% to 42% by registering on or before June 11*.

Conference lodging can also be booked. Low-cost rooms have been reserved on
the UIC campus. You can also stay at the official conference hotel, at a
substantial discount. There are a limited rooms available in both, and you
are encouraged to register early.

Thanks, and hope to see you in Chicago!
