DescriptionThe Galaxy platform is a workflow management system that has the potential to simplify the use of diverse computing infrastructures, effectively unlocking and democratising access to powerful data processing and computing capabilities. Originally developed for the bioinformatics community, but architected to be neutral to any particular science domain, Galaxy is now being deployed for researchers and professionals in the materials science, astrophysics, climate science and nuclear physics fields to optimally utilize the diverse computing infrastructures that are potentially available to these communities. In this mini-symposium, participants will explore the different aspects of enabling effective data analysis across a variety of scales, domains, and communities utilizing the Galaxy platform. This will include presentations on deploying and scaling Galaxy infrastructure in an operational facility, the challenges in transforming science use cases into functioning workflows, and how European scientific organizations are using galaxy to study muon science, climate science, and physics. We will also include a presentation on the Galaxy platform itself, and in particular the training and educational network that is used by a large number of researchers to promote open data analysis practices worldwide.
