* SC19 Birds of a Feather - Call for Submissions *

SC19: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, 
Networking, Storage, and Analysis
November 17-22, 2019, Denver, Colorado, USA

Submissions for sessions in the SC19 Birds of a Feather (BoF) program are now open. Details of the submission can be found at https://sc19.supercomputing.org/program/birds-of-a-feather/.

Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions are interactive, community-building, and non-commercial. Selected BoF proposals receive high ranking in terms of their potential for community building, relevance to the expected audience, the level of audience participation, and the timeliness of the topic. Other criteria may be considered as well. BoFs are expected to limit the inclusion of vendor-specific content.

Before submitting, consider whether your proposed session fits this description. Consider also whether there is another group of people who are likely to submit a similar BoF and whether you should merge your proposal with theirs. Upon review of your BoF proposal, the BoF committee may suggest combining with other proposals.

A proposal must be submitted for all BoFs. Even if your BoF has been held at a previous SC conference, you must submit a new proposal to be reviewed and evaluated against the other submissions. 

Following are some important dates about BoFs:

Submission Open - March 1, 2019
Submission Deadline - July 31,2019
Notification of Acceptance - Aug 31, 2019

Birds of a Feather Schedule:

BoF sessions will be held Tuesday–Thursday, November 19–21, 2019.

You can submit your questions about BoFs at https://sc19.supercomputing.org/contact-us/?topic=Birds+of+a+Feather.

Thanks very much and we look forward to seeing you at SC19!
