Galaxy Conference

Scott Szakonyi
Hi all,

I know this is not a technical question per se, but this seems my best option for getting better information.

I am planning on attending the Galaxy Conference this year. I administrate the Galaxy server for VectorBase (vectorbase.org), but I'm a computer scientist, not a bioinformatics specialist. I'm uncertain what would be the most informative things for me to attend... for instance, I see there is a training day 1 and 2, but there's no real description on the site of what those are. If someone could offer some guidance, I would be most appreciative.

Also, would the conference days be useful for someone in my position?

Thanks!

Hello Scott,

have you seen the schedule at https://gcc16.sched.org/ ?

The trainings are all listed, described, and categorized there, it should help you decide what to attend.
From my experience in addition to scientists there are many admins and developers attending the conference so you should be able to find your flock easily.

Plus we are all nice. :)

Best,
Martin

Fwd: Galaxy Conference

Scott Szakonyi
Hi Martin,

Thank you for the quick response! However, I'm unclear... is "Training Day One" different from the mix of individual session listed there, or does training day one consist of those other sessions that I sign up for? I have created a sched account, I'm just a bit confused about the relationship of things.

Thanks!

Scott

Hi Scott,

To my understanding the trainings (26th and 27th) comprise of the items listed on the sched site.  The Item you mentioned seems like a remnant of how the sched site is organised and I would ignore it.

Someone will surely correct me if I am wrong.

Best,

M.
