Submissions for pre-scheduled BoFs are now closed. If you missed the deadline, you can organize a BoF on site by using the BoF Board near Registration.

Poster Session Update

We have great news for those who like posters and those who like food!

We are adding a buffet dinner reception to the conference schedule for Wednesday night, March 11, 18:00 - 19:30 in the Atrium.

A highlight of the dinner will be the Poster Session, a great opportunity for the community to share projects, ideas, and plans in a relaxed, informal setting.


When you need a break, play a game! The Exhibit Area will have foosball and video games – both modern (Wii Sports) and classic (Atari Flashback).

On Wednesday, there's Game Night in the Atrium, featuring board and card games.
