It's time again to gather together, discuss recent and future Galaxy developments in Freiburg at the European Galaxy Days 2022!

To minimize travelling (and yes, we recommend taking a train :-) ), we are co-locating 3 events on the same week:

  • ELIXIR Galaxy Implementation Study (IS2021) meeting,
  • European Galaxy Days (EGD), talks, discussions and updates, including ELIXIR-Galaxy community meeting, and CoFest,
  • EuroScienceGateway (ESG) kick-off, an EU-funded project to build a mature network of national Galaxy servers and Pulsar endpoints in European clouds and HPC centers.

Registration is free, but the space is limited, so we recommend to you register soon to secure your spot for the different events.
