Monday Birds of a Feather Sessions

Events See BoF Schedule for Locations

What is a BoF?

Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions provide face to face exposure to those interested in the same projects and concepts. BoFs can be organized for individual projects or broader topics (best practices, open data, standards). BoFs are entirely up to you. We post your topic online and onsite and provide the space and time. You provide the engaging topic. Each BoF is 60 minutes long.

BoFs at Where Conference 2012 will happen 8:30 – 10:30pm on the following evenings:

  • Monday, April 2
  • Tuesday, April 3

How do I lead a BoF?

Moderating a BoF is open to attendees and speakers at the event. You must be a registered Where Conference attendee to conduct a BoF. The moderator of a BoF is not a speaker in the main program. Check the BoF schedule board onsite at the SF Marriott Marquis and sign up in any open slot.

Please note that audio/visual equipment, including projection equipment, will not be available for BoF sessions. If you require any audio/visual equipment, you may request these services separately.

How do I participate in a BoF?

If you would like to join the discussion in one of the BoFs, there is no need to formally sign up. Check the BoF schedule board near Registration at the Marriott Marquis for topics, times, and locations.
