BoFs are scheduled throughout the conference week at the discretion of FIRST organizers. BoF topics must be submitted for review and approval using the submission form. A BoF agenda will be posted to the conference website in early June.

Submissions must be received by May 26.

Upcoming Odds and Ends: Virtual Participation + Mobile App Details & Sunday Workshops

We have several upcoming items to share with you over the next couple of weeks:

  • Virtual Participation + Mobile App Details: We will be presenting this year’s conference in a hybrid format through use of our TouchPoint mobile app (also available for desktops). Virtual participants will have the ability to chat live with other attendees—including in-person delegates. TLP:WHITE sessions will be streamed live from Dublin and made available on-demand immediately following within the app. A dedicated email about the mobile app will be coming in early June.
  • Sunday Trainings: Sunday trainings are open to all registered delegates of the FIRST conference. The current offerings are listed on https://www.first.org/conference/2022/program. We are still pending a few additional details from our trainers. We will send another dedicated email to our attendees with a first-come, first-served sign-up form later this month. All Sunday trainings will start at 09:30 on Sunday, June 26.
