Hello potential GCC2017 Attendees!

The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) will be held 26-30 June, in Montpellier, France. GCC2017 training will be held 27-28 June. We need your vote to determine what to offer at GCC2017 training.

If there is even a remote chance that you will attend GCC2017 (it's in the South of France; it will be summer; don't let that influence your decision), then please vote on which of the 34 nominated topics you would like to see offered at GCC2017.

Vote Now! Voting closes Wednesday, 8 February.

27 June will be single track and focus on how to use Galaxy for research. 28 June will have multiple tracks, and offer the full spectrum of Galaxy training.

Vote for as many topics as you like, but please note that the more topics you vote for, the less your vote for each single topic will count.

Voting closes on 8 February. Once that happens the organisers will scramble to confirm instructors and set a schedule. The training schedule will be posted before registration opens in February.
