We have many BOF (Birds of a Feather) spaces set aside for the conference. BOFs may take place during the main conference sessions, as well as before or after the normal conference scheduled sessions - based on room availablity. All of these spaces are equipped with tables and chairs set up for discussion, a projector and a screen. The hotel also has many great gathering spaces for small groups who do not require presentation equipment.

For more information on setting up BOF sessions see BOF -Birds of a Feather meetings


We are asking conference attendees to help convene sessions that they plan on attending at the conference. Convenor responsibilities include:

  • Introductions - Introduce the presenters for each session.
  • Timekeeping - Help the speaker to start and end their session on time.
  • Evaluations - Distribute and collect session evaluations.

Please visit the Volunteers page to select the session you can convene (login required).

Thank you for helping out!
