The Birds of a Feather sessions are designed to provide an environment for colleagues with similar interests to meet for informal discussion. Conference evaluations have continually indicated that participants want more opportunities to network with their colleagues around areas of common interest. These sessions feature small group discussion to provide participants the opportunity to meet with peers; share promising practices, resources, and lessons learned; collaborate on future endeavors; and establish networks. Specifically selected session and discussion leaders will share expertise and facilitate access to an interactive information exchange on some of the most timely and important issues for the ATE community. ATE project and center teams are advised to divide their attendees among the different Birds of a Feather sessions to cover more ground at the conference and to benefit from multiple contacts.
A list of online resources will be available on the conference web site for each Birds of a Feather session; and participants are encouraged to contribute any additional resources for these lists on site. The Birds of a Feather resource lists will be updated and posted to the conference web site and ATE Central.
Note: Each Birds of a Feather session will be set for 40-50 attendees. Attendance at these discussion sessions is first-come, first-served. If the session room is full, please select another session to attend. The sessions will be offered from 2:30–3:45 p.m. and then repeat from 4:00–5:15 p.m. so participants have the opportunity to attend more than one session.
