Conference Coverage

Birds of a Feather Sessions

Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BOFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards). BOFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic.

Online submissions for BOFs are closed, please check the BOF board in the registration area (Elizabeth Ballroom E) and sign up for a session onsite. Space is limited; sign-ups are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note that audio/visual equipment, including projection equipment, will not be available for BOF sessions. If you require any audio/visual equipment, you may contact the official convention audio/visual producer, for rental rates.
