About Birds of a Feather Sessions

BoF sessions are highly informal opportunities to bring together people with a common interest who already intend a particular event. Unlike a workshop, keynote speech, or particular paper, you don't go to IDCC because a particular BoF session is happening. The BoF is for people who are interested in a particular topic, find that they will all be at the same event, and want to use their co-location to explore that topic. It shares characteristics with the notion of the unconference. Follow the link below to find out more.
