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.
SC16 will continue this tradition with a full schedule of exciting, informal, interactive sessions focused around a variety of special topics of mutual interest.
BOF sessions are an excellent opportunity to connect and interact with other attendees with whom you share a mutual interest. SC16 will feature BOF sessions about many HPC-related topics such as algorithms, applications, architectures and networks, clouds and distributed computing, data analytics, visualization and storage, education, outreach, performance measurement, modeling and tools, programming models and software systems, as well as the “state-of-the-practice”.
