The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-8 July. 2019 and was the largest GCC ever with 231 participants, 39 Galaxy training courses, 65 talks, 54 posters, 13 demos, and more than 30 different BoFs. Our participants came from 27 different countries of Eastern- and Western Europe, North America, Asia, Oceania and Sub-saharan Africa.
GCC2019 offered several new features in the schedule. These changes supported the record amount of content that was offered this year and they made the meeting more interactive than in past years. The meeting featured plenary & parallel sessions; invited, accepted, and lightning talks; poster and demo sessions; birds-of-a-feather meetups; social events; and training sessions every day.
