The conference will include keynotes, accepted talks, poster sessions, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2016 to present your work and to learn from others.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Yoav Gilad, a professor of human genetics at the University of Chicago. Dr. Gilad will speak on genomic variation and the impact of regulatory variation from RNA to protein. The Gilad Lab works to understand the genetic architecture of gene regulation and how differences in gene regulation affect complex phenotypes, including human diseases, using large gene regulatory datasets from primates.
Dr. Gilad earned a Ph.D. in molecular genetics from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, and completed an EMBO postdoctoral fellowship training at Yale University.

There will also be two lightning talk sessions during the conference. The call for these will go out in late June.
Workflow developers and power bioinformatics users
Use Galaxy to construct complex bioinformatics workflows and then run them repeatedly, share them with others, or publish them to the world.
Sequencing and Bioinformatics core staff
Local Galaxy deployments can simplify analysis tasks and empower researchers by giving them direct access to managing custom analyses.
Bioinformatics tool developers and data providers
Integrate your tools and resources into the Galaxy ecosystem, increasing the tools’ visibility, and making them easier to use and integrate with other resources.
Data and analysis archival specialists
Galaxy extends the goal of reproducibility from the bench to the computational realm. Galaxy records all steps in an analysis including datasets and tools and tool settings used, all without requiring any additional effort from the user.
Galaxy is an open, web-based platform for data-intensive biomedical research. Galaxy enables easy interactive analysis through the web on arbitrarily large datasets. With access to hundreds of tools, Galaxy is a comprehensive resource in achieving your goals. Galaxy provides NGS tools and workflows for short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, pile-up analysis, trackster browsers, collaborative pages, and support for Galaxy in the Cloud. Galaxy is distributed under the Academic Free License.
Indiana University is a major public research university and home to the National Center for Genome Analysis Support (NCGAS). It has over 42,000 students, on a pastoral campus that has been identified as one of the five most beautiful college campuses in the US. June is a wonderful month to visit Bloomington with a multitude of activities in and around the campus. More than half the student population leaves Bloomington during the summer, which provides easier transportation and dining opportunities for GCC attendees.
