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 [].

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
  • Taken off-site for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

FOSS4G will provide space, but the programming of meetups is done informally using this wiki, twitter, and on site BoF board.


The BoF sessions rooms are available through regular session times.

  • There Are two rooms setup theater style (without AV) that are available.
  • There will also be a lounge available on the trade floor to gather small groups.

We will put a BoF organizing board next to the lounge for on site organization.
