Last week we wrapped up selecting sessions for BriForum London (19-20 May), and what follows is a list of the sessions that we accepted! I want to stress how incredibly difficult it is to choose sessions for a show. We had a record 192 sessions to choose from, which meant that for London we could only select 15% of the submitted sessions! The selection process is an iterative one, where we take successive passes until we get the number down that we need. After our first pass, there were still 101 sessions in the mix! The first pass we take is blind, where we only look at the titles and abstracts. After that we start looking at speakers, and topic distribution between shows. Though it's an exhausting process, we take it very seriously and are extremely grateful for the energy and effort that people put into their submissions.
We try to have unique content at each show (London and Denver this year), so we record every session and post the videos within a few weeks after the conference ends. Attendees of one show have access to the videos of both shows, so if you attend London, you'll have access to the 55+ session in Denver in addition to the 28 from London.
You can see the list of BriForum Denver 2015 sessions here.
Here's the list of sessions. Keep in mind, titles may change to be more descriptive, but the content of the sessions won't. Also note that there will be sessions from Brian, Jack, and I that aren't on this list mainly because we tailor our sessions based on the other content at a show. For more information on BriForum, visit BriForum.com. We should have session descriptions posted shortly.
