The saying goes “Birds of a Feather Flock together”.

Just as bird species flock together, people with similar interests tend to congregate with one another.

There are a lot of technical and management subjects that need attention, but not all of these can be planned as a workshop or formal session. Birds Of a Feather, or BoF sessions, bring people with similar interests together to meet and discuss these topics.

At ICCM we will vote on BoF topics proposed by conference attendees. There will be 5 time slots and 5 rooms, so we will have at least 20 BoFs.

Some BoF topics from last year included:

  • Short Term IT Missions Trips
  • The new EU Data law and what it means to us
  • Endpoint Security –
  • Collaborative Community Licensing (WebRoot)
  • Augmented Reality
  • Power Generation and Storage Devices
