Wednesday Night BOFs
Submitted on 2012-12-11 21:04
So it turns out there are a whole heap of things that need to be organised for an LCA. But, just like in the rest of life, sometimes the best parts are the impromptu ones. You’ll have heard people refer to the ‘hallway track’ at conferences, and we here at LCA HQ want to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for you to meet up with your friends in the hallway in between talks. But what happens when you really want to meet up with other people who are interested in the same things you are, and five minutes between talks just isn’t enough? Well, you have a BOF of course!
Birds of a Feather sessions are a regular feature at LCA, and this year we decided to change things up a little so that there is more time for more BOF goodness. Normally, the Wednesday night of an LCA is given over to the Professional Delegates’ Networking Sessions (PDNS). We decided to reshuffle the PDNS to a breakfast, so we can give over Wednesday night to BOFs instead (we heard you liked BOFs, so we added more BOF to your BOF!).
Basically, the plan is thus: Wednesday afternoon, once you’ve gotten your fill of the day’s sessions, you have a choice. You can head on back to your accommodation, go out for dinner with friends, or just chill out for a while (let’s face it, by Wednesday afternoon we’re all feeling pretty exhausted!). Or you can grab your fellow birds, check their feathers, and head off to a meeting room in the conference venue to kick on.
So, if you want to organise a BOF, we suggest you head over to the wiki page, and start organising! If you just want to join the BOF party, then keep an eye on that page, and keep Wednesday night free.
