GCC2019 has ended
The 2019 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2019) was held in Freiburg, Germany, 1-8 July.  There was one day of training, three days of mixed meeting and training, and then two to four days of CollaborationFest.  The meeting featured joint & parallel sessions; invited, accepted, and lightning talks; poster and demo sessions; birds-of-a-feather meetups; social events; and training sessions every day.

Thanks to everyone who helped make GCC2019 a success!
