Because good research needs good data

Birds of a Feather IDCC 2018

Diana Sisu | 13 February 2018

For the past four years, we have run very successful BoF sessions at IDCC.

Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions are 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.

How to submit a topic

To propose a BoF session at IDCC, simply comment on this news item using the tools at the bottom of the post.

Your proposal should be a short statement of what you want to talk about and who might be interested. 'Short' can mean as little as one sentence, or as much as a paragraph. Each BoF lasts 90 minutes so be realistic about what you can achieve within this time.

Use whatever other means you can think of to get others interested in your proposal before the conference starts. We'll publicise via twitter and postings to delegates.

Submit your ideas by 12 noon on Monday, 19 February 2018.

Get thinking and get commenting!
