There is no better place than a Galaxy Community Conference to meet and learn from others doing high-throughput biology. GCC2014 will continue this tradition by again including Birds of a Feather (BoF) meetups.

Encouraging conference participants to organize BoFs

Promote BoFs to all conference participants, over and over, both before and during the conference until everyone actually grows feathers.
Coordinate and reserve rooms for BoFs, and allocate time in the schedule for them too.
