Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions (BOFs)

Don't just observe, ENGAGE! The Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions are among the most interactive, popular, and well-attended sessions of the SC Conference Series. The BOF sessions provide a non-commercial, dynamic venue for conference attendees to openly discuss current topics of focused mutual interest within the HPC community with a strong emphasis on audience-driven discussion, professional networking and grassroots participation. SC12 continues this tradition with a full schedule of exciting, informal, interactive sessions focused around a variety special topics of mutual interest, including:

  • Applications, Languages, and Programming Environments
  • Computing, Storage, Networking, and Analyisis
  • Systems Administration and Data Center Operations
  • Innovation in HPC and Emerging Technologies
  • Government and Group Initiatives

Note a couple of important changes this year. First of all, BOFs meet on Tuesday, November 13 and Wednesday, November 14 from 12:15P-1:15 p.m. and 5:30-7 p.m. On Thursday, November 15, BOFs meet from 12:15-1:15 p.m. only. Secondly, this year BOFs are open to all conference attendees (including exhibitors), but not for exhibits-only badge holders.

BOF sessions are an excellent opportunity to connect and interact with other attendees with whom you share a mutual interest.
