The next GMOD meeting will be on January 16th and 17th 2014, immediately after PAG XXII.

"It's tempting to see bioinformatics as a collection of potential problems. Being at a GMOD meeting helps us see bioinformatics as a collection of potential solutions."
Isabelle Phan, SBRI, and past GMOD meeting participant

GMOD puts on several types of meetings, including semi-annual community meetings and specialized hackathons. GMOD content is also presented at Training and Outreach events, run both by GMOD and by other organizations. All these events are listed on the GMOD Calendar.

Once or twice a year the GMOD community gathers to discuss GMOD components, usage, and direction. These meetings usually occur immediately before or after a major conference that is likely to be of interest to members of the community. These meetings are open to everyone: developers, users, and potential users. Registration is usually low cost.
