Sponsorship opportunities

BCC2020 is seeking sponsorships. Sponsorships make registration affordable and this fact is stressed before and during the event. Conference organizers also stress that sponsors are potential collaborators that can help participants do their research. This will be the 21st BOSC meeting, and the 11th Galaxy Community Conference, and is the second time the two have been co-located. All BCC2020 events will be attended by members of both the Galaxy and BOSC communities.

The move to an online event enables BCC2020 to be presented twice per day: one window is anchored in the event’s original Toronto time zone (BCC West), and the other starting 12 hours later on the other side of the world (BCC East). BCC2020 will be virtual, global and affordable, making this the largest and most inclusive BOSC and Galaxy event to date. Sponsoring the Bioinformatics Community Conference is an excellent way to raise your organization’s visibility, and will help make BCC2020 a success.

BCC2020 participants come from a wide variety of research environments and backgrounds:

  1. Biological researchers, students, and postdocs who now have, or who will shortly have, next generation sequencing data, and are learning bioinformatics analysis.
  2. Power bioinformatics users
  3. Bioinformatics tool and workflow developers
  4. Bioinformatics focused principal investigators and researchers
  5. Sequencing core facility staff
  6. Industry principal scientists and bioinformaticians
  7. Data producers
