Abstract: ADASS Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions usually focus on one topic that is proposed before it is accepted. This BoF used an “unconference” format, in which topics for discussion are proposed by attendees before and during the conference, and then are chosen by participants at the beginning of the session. Small-group conversation at round tables allowed discussion of numerous topics, with participants self-sorting themselves into discussion groups. The session closed with one-minute reports from each table. The session was also quickly summarized, along with the other BoFs, in the final plenary session.
