Birds of a Feather at BOSC 2021 (deadline June 25)

Birds of a Feather (BoFs) are informal, self-organized meetups focused on specific topics. They are a great way to meet other like-minded community members and have an in-depth discussion on a topic of shared interest.

BoFs at ISMB/ECCB 2021 will take place each day of the meeting except the last day, at the same time as the poster session (not ideal, we know–but there are only so many viable hours in the day), from 15:20-16:20 UTC. We recommend that you choose either Thursday, July 29 (the first day of BOSC) or Wednesday, July 28 (the day before BOSC).

Any ISMB/ECCB participant is welcome to propose a BoF! All you need is a topic, a leader, and a brief description. Submit your BoF proposal at no later than June 25.

If you’re organizing a BOSC-related BoF, let us know! We’ll list it on our website ( and tweet about it!
