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. BoFs 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.  SC14 continues this tradition with a full schedule of exciting BoFs.

We received 142 BoF proposals and a 22-person committee helped to select 85 for presentation. The selected BoFs span a wide range of timely topics. Technical topics include: accelerators, power/energy concerns, OS/Runtime issues and exascale application programming models. There will be several sessions on various HPC Center management topics including power and energy management, configuration tools and liquid cooling strategies. Lastly, the program includes a variety of non-technical BoFs on topics like research funding initiatives, the HPC workforce and even a behind the scenes look at what it takes to run SC each year.

BoF sessions will be held at lunch and evening times, Tuesday, November 18 through Thursday November 20. (There are no Thursday evening BoFs.) Visit the SC14 schedule for detailed program information and session logistics.
