> We are pleased to announce the *2011 Galaxy Community Conference*, being
> held *May 25-26 in Lunteren, The Netherlands*. The meeting will feature
> two full days of presentations and discussion on extending Galaxy to use =
> tools and data sources, deploying Galaxy at your organization, and best
> practices for using Galaxy to further your own and your community's
> research. See http://galaxy.psu.edu/gcc2011/ for complete details.
>> *About Galaxy:
> *Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for *accessible, reproducible, and
> transparent* computational biomedical research.
>> - *Accessibility:* Galaxy enables users without programming experience
> to easily specify parameters and run tools and workflows.
> - *Reproducibility:* Galaxy captures all information necessary so that
> any user can repeat and understand a complete computational analysis.
> - *Transparency:* Galaxy enables users to share and publish analyses
> via the web and create Pages--interactive, web-based documents that de=
> a complete analysis.
>> Galaxy is open source for all organizations. The public Galaxy service (
>http://usegalaxy.org) makes analysis tools, genomic data,
> tutorial demonstrations, persistent workspaces, and publication services
> available to any scientist that has access to the Internet. Local
> Galaxy servers can be set up by downloading the Galaxy application and
> customizing it to meet particular needs.
>> *Conference Overview:
> This event aims to engage a broader community of developers, data
> producers, tool creators, and core facility and other research hub staff =
> become an active part of the Galaxy community. We'll cover defining
> resources in the Galaxy framework, increasing their visibility and making
> them easier to use and integrate with other resources, how to extend Gala=
> to use custom data sources and custom tools, and best practices for using
> Galaxy in your organization.
>> Additional topics include, but are not limited to:
> * Talks submitted by the Galaxy community
> * Integration of tools (including NGS analysis tools) and distributed job
> * Deployment of Galaxy instances on local resources and on the Cloud
> * Management of large datasets with the Galaxy Library System
> * Using the Galaxy LIMS functionality at NGS sequencing facilities
> * Visualizing Data without leaving Galaxy
> * Performing reproducible research
> * Performing and sharing complex analyses with Workflows
> * An "Introduction to Galaxy" session, offered on May 24, for Galaxy

> The 2011 Galaxy Community Conference is co-sponsored by the US National
> Science Foundation (NSF, http://www.nsf.gov/), and the Netherlands
> Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC, http://www.nbic.nl/). NBIC is a
> collaborative institute of the bioinformatics groups in the Netherlands.
> Together, these groups perform cutting-edge research, develop novel tools
> and support platforms, create an e-science infrastructure and educate the
> next generations of bioinformaticians.
>> We are looking forward to a great conference and hope to see you in the
