Default GMOD Satellite Meetings, March 7, 2011, Durham, NC

As part of GMOD Americas 2011 (see this thread), we are also holding several Satellite Meetings on March 7, the day after the GMOD Community Meeting ends.

Satellite meetings are smaller groups of people meeting to discuss a common interest, or work on a common problem (think special interest groups / birds-of-a-feather). Unlike the GMOD Meeting, there is no registration fee for the Satellites, and you don't need to attend any other GMOD Americas events to participate in the Satellites. If you are in the area, or attending other GMOD Americas events, or are just very interested in the topic, we strongly encourage you to attend.

The current list of Satellites includes:
  • GMOD Evo Hackathon Followup: A followup to the GMOD Evo Hackathon held at NESCent in November 2011. You didn't need to participate in the original event to participate in this followup. If there is interest, this satellite can extend for more than one day.
  • Customizing and Extending JBrowse: JBrowse has a few different extension points, but they're not (yet) well-documented or widely used. The GMOD meeting would be a good time to review those APIs, relate them to the things that people want to do with them, discuss any potential changes or new APIs to support specific use cases, and potentially start to implement an extension.
  • GMOD Web services toolkit: Come to work on or discuss the GMOD Web services API and the toolkit.
  • GMOD in the Sequencing Center: Sequencing centers have tremendous bioinformatics needs that GMOD can help address. Attend this satellite to find out what other sequencing centers are doing with GMOD, and how GMOD can help you help your researchers.
If you are interested in participating in these, please contact the organizers, and/or add your name to the satellite's participants list on the wiki.

Satellites can be organized by anyone. If you have a topic you would like to cover, please add it to the list and announce it the appropriate mailing lists. Several previous satellites are written up on the GMOD wiki, if you want an idea of what happens at a satellite.

Thanks, and hope to see you in March!
