Birds-of-a-feather

birdsBoF sessions are informal discussion groups on specific topics of interest. Attendees split into small groups to discuss specific technical or social topics that interest them. Suitable topics for discussion include (but are not limited to) careers, education, challenges, student organizations, or any other topic related to computing. BoF sessions may be organized by one or more students, faculty, and industry professionals. Submit a brief proposal of no more than one page describing the discussion topic and listing the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the organizer(s). BoF proposals will be reviewed; due to limited space, at most four proposals can be accommodated. All accepted BoF abstracts will be published in the CWIC conference proceedings.

Fifteen minutes presentations will allow graduate students, advanced undergraduates, faculty, and industry professionals to offer more in-depth insight into their work. You must submit a brief abstract (no more than one page) describing the topic of your talk and listing the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the speaker(s). All accepted talk abstracts will be published in the CWIC conference proceedings.
