Check out the list of sessions that we selected for BriForum 2014 London (May 20-21)!

Last week we wrapped up selecting sessions for BriForum London (20-21 May, 2014), 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.

Last week we wrapped up selecting sessions for BriForum London (20-21 May, 2014), 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 over 175 sessions submitted (a record for us!), which meant that for London we couldn't select 85% of the 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 133 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 greatly appreciate the situation of having too many great sessions to pick from as opposed to the alternative.

Also, since we record every session and make the videos available to attendees as soon as we can after the show is over, we make an effort to have each show be as unique as possible. There will be some key sessions duplicated between London and Boston, but for the most part these sessions are unique to London. (You can see the sessions for BriForum Boston 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 (it's our ten-year anniversary!!!), visit We should have session descriptions posted shortly.
