Panel Submissions closing soon

Do you have a great idea for a panel or workshop inspired by women’s contributions to, and experiences in, geeky life? Whether you’re a gamer, costumer, cosplayer, writer, scientist, artist, business owner, or whatever flavor of geek you may be, if there’s a topic that’s important to you–something you are passionate about–and you think people would be interested in learning or discussing it, let us know!

Panel submissions are only open for one more week–until midnight on Friday, May 1–so if you’re itching to get your ideas in front of a welcoming crowd, make sure not to miss this opportunity!

The Con will be held October 10 and 11, 2015 at The Conference Center at the WSCC. This is your chance to be part of it, to talk about topics that mean something to you, and to learn more about geek culture all over the world. This year is our fifth anniversary, and we’re already working to make it better than ever!

With the panel application, we’ll need:

  • Panel title
  • Short description (100-150 words)
  • Audio visual requirements
  • Age restrictions (if any)

We will also need the following information for each panelist on the submission form:

  • Name
  • Short bio (150-200 words max each)
  • Email
  • Twitter handle

So head over to our applications page and let us know your ideas. We can’t wait to hear from you!

    Hello GeekGril–ai have a panel submission but only now saw the deadline of May 1. it’s a four person panel that involves two women and two men who have over 50 years of combined experience working in PC and console gaming, including titles such as BioShock 2, Hal, Plants vs. Zombies–women’s perspective on the industry, as well as men’s perspective on how the industry can be more inclusive.
    I completely understand we’re past the deadline–there’s always next year!

      Hi Stacie,

      I’m afraid we can’t accept submissions after the deadline. We typically have far more applications than we have slots to fill–a great problem to have, but unfortunately it means we have to be fairly strict about deadlines. If you’re still interested next year, please keep an eye out in the early spring. We try and advertise panel submissions a few weeks before they open so that people have the time to get their information together.
