Flock together at Birds-of-a-Feather sessions


Have you heard fellow attendees talking about the “BOFs” and wondered what language they were speaking? The BOFs (Birds-of-a-Feather sessions) are informal discussion groups that give you the opportunity to meet up with other SAS® users and staff who share your specific interests.

The BOFs will be held on the Convention Center level from 6 - 9 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. You’ll find sign-up sheets for each topic in the Conference Registration area, or you can form your own BOF and invite others to join you.

Be sure to check the sign ups on Monday and Tuesday in case a new BOF session forms that you want to attend. Here’s a sampling of what’s available:
