I want to point out the following BOF:
Building User-groups for Educators
Thursday 6:10-55pm in room: 202C
Paul  Steinberg,   Intel Academic Community
Tom  Murphy,   Contra Costa College
Increasingly, we rely on on user-based communities, yet building such communities can be complex. In this BOF, we will explore some basic questions: How do we build a user community for academics world-wide? How do we reach out to a diverse set of professionals at markedly different institutions? What are the best strategies for promoting engagement and user-generated content? What conversational styles and technologies work, and which do not? What possibilities exist for industry and academic cooperation? How can we best make use of new social media tools and trends? The conversation will be led by an academic community manager from industry and a computer science professor who has been at the forefront of building HPC learning communities. The intent is to assist both those building new communities and expanding existing ones. Particular attention will be paid to the use of internet-based & innovative platforms as well as the challenges of reaching a diverse user base.
