Attending this event?
The 2018 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2018) and Bioinformatics Open Source Conference 2018 (BOSC2018) are joining together for a unified event to be held in Portland, Oregon, United States, June 25-30, 2018.  The event includes two days of training, a two day meeting, and finishes with two or four days of intense collaboration at the GCC OBF CollaborationFest Core and Encore events.  The meeting will feature joint and parallel sessions, shared keynotes, poster and demo sessions, and social events.  Colocating GCC and BOSC will bring together the widest possible community of bioinformatics developers and practitioners into a single place.  At this event the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts.

The event is organized by Oregon Health & Science University and will be held at Reed College, a small liberal arts college in Portland. Conference housing is available in two Reed College residence hall complexesPortland is a vibrant city in the American Northwest, close to the Cascade Mountains, the Oregon Coast, and the Columbia River.

GCC OBF CollaborationFest: Core

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The GCCBOSC meeting will be followed by CollaborationFest: Core, two days with lots of opportunities and emphasis on  learning about open source bioinformatics projects and software.

CollaborationFest will have three tracks:

  • Galaxy development (Galaxy Dev): Learn how Galaxy and Galaxy code development works, and contribute to the Galaxy code base
  • Galaxy documentation, analysis, and training (Galaxy DAT): Focus on expanding Galaxy community resources like training materials and documentation.
  • OBF: Contribute to any open source bioinformatics project.

These groups will be fluid and highly interactive with each other. There will be a joint gathering of all communities at least once a day.

See the CollaborationFest page for more.
