Birds of a Feather ... Flock together!

AOSD.07 aims to promote discussion to the greatest extent possible. To that end we provide rooms and equipment for organised as well as impromptu "Birds of a Feather" (BoF) Sessions. A BoF session provides an informal forum for discussions related to the AOSD community and its topics. Attendees who want to get together with others who share their interests, goals, technologies, environments, or backgrounds are invited to organise and attend a Birds of a Feather

BoF Purposes

BoFs can be used

  • to continue a discussion that began in a workshop,
  • to allow more detailed follow-up discussion on a paper or demo,
  • for a group to get together to pursue a common interest,
  • to discuss research directions, or
  • to discuss contrary opinions.


For the better advertisement or space considerations of your BoFs, please send an email to

Please include:

  • the title of your BoF,
  • a short descripiton of your BoF session,
  • equipment you need (e.g., projector),
  • your name, affiliation, and preferred email address.
  • approximate size of the audience you expect (this will help determine the size of the room we reserve for you)


Rooms and time slots will be anounced later upon the finalization of the conference schedule.


BoFs that are requested before the start of the conference will be announced on the conference webpage, including a short description of the discussed topic. All BoFs will be announced during the conference in all tracks. Additionally, posters will advertise BoF events with all necessary information such as topic, room, time etc. Sign-up sheets will be placed near the registration desk, where organisers can reserve rooms on a first-come first-served basis during the conference, but BoF attendees are asked to sign-up, too.
