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. SC13 will continue this tradition with a full schedule of exciting, informal, interactive sessions focused around a variety of special topics of mutual interest.

There were 113 BOF proposals submitted to SC13 for peer review. A committee of 22 members selected 74 BOF sessions to be held at SC13. These sessions involve a wide range of HPC-related topics such as accelerators, programming models, big data, and education. Sessions will be held Tuesday, November 19 and Wednesday, November 20 at lunchtime and in the evening, and Thursday, November 21 at lunchtime. See the SC13 schedule for detailed information about which sessions will be held and when.
