3rd Swiss Galaxy Workshop, Thursday, October 20th, Freiburg (Germany)

After the big success of the first Swiss Galaxy Workshop and the second Swiss Galaxy Workshop, we are going to organize a similar event again in fall 2016.

Topic of the Workshop

This year, the workshop is aimed at Galaxy administrators and will collocate with the Oktober meetup of the Galaxy-Admins discussion group.

We encourage presentations about your success stories using Galaxy as well as the problems you have encountered. Please indicate a preliminary title on the registration page.
