Introduction

Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions are unstructured timeslots where people can self-organise themselves to discuss topics of interest.

General Information

During the FOSS4G 2017 conference in Boston, there will be a number of spaces for people to hold Birds of a Feather sessions.

For reference, an overview of the FOSS4G schedule is available at [2017.foss4g.org/program/ http://2017.foss4g.org/program/].

How to organize a BOF

BoF sessions are informal gatherings of people around a specific topic. BoF's can be held in: BoF rooms, BoF lounge or taken off-site for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

While FOSS4G is provide space, but the setting up a bird-of-feather meetup is done informally using this wiki, twitter, or on site BoF board.

Capacities

The BoF sessions rooms are available through regular session times.

  • Theater Room 1 - setup theater style (without AV)
  • Theater Room 2 - setup theater style (without AV)
