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.

Galaxy with its flexibility, reproducibility, and scalability is an ideal environment for teaching and training diverse scientific topics.

The Galaxy Training Network is a community initiative dedicated to high-quality Galaxy-based training around the world. One of its objectives is to support trainers with complete training material and recommendations about bioinformatics training. Templates and best training practices were defined to help trainers create new material, unify the different material, and make training materials more accessible and easy for users to learn and for teachers to teach (https://training.galaxyproject.org).

This workshop will introduce participants to the infrastructure of the GTN training materials and describe how to generate training materials following best practices. Participants will be introduced to the generation of Galaxy Interactive Tours and Docker Galaxy flavors dedicated to teaching and training sessions. The workshop will also cover best practices for running Galaxy-based workshops - how to plan a training session based on number of attendees, time constraints, resource availability, etc.
