SCHEDULE YOUR BOF

Handy Hint

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.

How to set up your BOF:

  • Add a BOF wiki page by clicking on the Add Page link near the top right corner of this page (must be logged in to see this link).
    When you add a child page you should provide a brief summary of the BOF you would like to hold. Your BOF page will offer a starting point for collaboration among those who will want to participate in this BOF (both before and during the conference.) You can then create additional child pages of your BOF page, upload attachments (e.g., presentations materials, documents), post comments, etc. After you create your BOF page, it will appear in the list below.
  • Submit a BOF proposal
    After creating your BOF wiki page, go to to the proposal submission form . (you will be required to login with the account you used for conference registration).
    *Select the BOF option and fill out the form.
    *Make sure to enter your BOF wiki page URL into the form where requested - this will allow us to link to your BOF page from our main schedules.
  • BOF Timeslots?
    We will begin scheduling BOFs in mid-May, once the schedule is finalized.

Questions regarding BOFs should be sent to mmiles@umich.edu.
