Contests and Sign-Ups

Panelist Application

Panel Form – This form allows you to apply to run a panel or event at the convention. Our schedules are built on these forms, so they are mandatory for all persons running a panel. This form is due no later than June 5, 2014 (extended slightly beyond deadline—applications remain currently open). We have limited space, so panels are approved selectively. Submitting a form does not automatically approve your panel. Your panel is only final if and when you receive written approval from the Panels Manager or Director of Programming. More consideration is given to panel forms submitted earlier. If you have any questions, please contact the Panels Manager at
