Birds of a Feather Sessions

Online submissions for BOFs are now closed. Please check the BOF board in the conference area on the Ballroom Level of the Fairmont to sign up for a session onsite. Space is limited; sign-ups are on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.

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.

The following BOF's have been scheduled for the conference. Please check the "Birds of a Feather Sessions" corkboard located throughout the foyers onsite for up-to-the-minute changes and information.
