Introduction

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


BoF's at the Oregon Convention Center

General Information

During the FOSS4G2014 conference in Portland, USA, there will be a number of spaces for people to hold Birds of a Feather sessions.


The 1-hour time blocks outlined below are just general guidelines. Adjust as needed. For reference, an overview of the FOSS4G schedule is available at https://2014.foss4g.org/about/calendar/.


Rooms

We have three rooms each day at the Convention Center: E146, E147, & E148. These rooms are dedicated spaces so BoF to your heart's content! Default room configuration will be long tables arranged a U-shape (although "contents may settle while BoF'ing"). The room capacities stated below are based off of that U configuration. We'll try to have some additional chairs available as well.


Technically the Exhibit Hall has room too. It will be arranged ballroom style with round tables. However, keep in mind it is a large, open, and public space. As such, it can't really be reserved, and is probably not ideal for a formal meeting (i.e. it could be noisy). In a nut shell, use at your own risk.

Capacities

  • Room E146: 36
  • Room E147: 18
  • Room E148: 20
