Birds of a Feather

During the conference there will be an opportunity to participate in, and organise your own, smaller meetings with fellow attendees on boutique topics of relevance. The sessions are a feature of the CHEP conference series and are referred to as `birds-of-a-feather' sessions! CHEP is a wonderful opportunity to gather collaborators together you normally only see virtually. There are several venues that may be reserved for BoF sessions, with varying availability.

Venue Available times Notes
Hall F Parallels, Wed PM Multiple groups of 10-12
Riverbank Boardroom (RB) Parallels, breaks Small group, screen
Riverbank rooms (R1 - R8) Lunch [Mon, Tue, Thu only] Large group, projector

  • In the centre of the hall there are 25 round tables, each seating up to 10 people.
  • Against the eastern wall there is a stand up meeting zone with white board facilities available for small group discussions.

Hall F is available during the parallel sessions, and also on Wednesday afternoon for those who are not participating in an excursion.
