Received a lot of news in an email from CONvergence today, which you can see below. Really if you live in the midwest, you have no excuse not to attend this show.
Below is from email.
Hello from your friends at CONvergence, an annual convention for fans of Science Fiction and Fantasy in all media, held each July.
CONvergence 2010 will be held July 1-4, 2010, when our theme will be a celebration of the great VILLAINS of Sci-Fi and Fantasy.
Learn more about our 2010 Guests of Honor at http://www.convergence-con.org/guests/guests.php.

Help Wanted – Connie’s Quantum Sandbox and more!Even with the convention as close as it is, a number of convention departments are still looking for additional help, even at the sub-head and co-head level.
Connie’s Quantum Sandbox (CQS) especially needs your help. Two of the co-heads in charge are commuting all the way from Iowa to help run events! They could use some local support!
CQS is CONvergence’s Art and Science activity room and needs people to help run projects! We’ve got a list of our ideas here: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tTWvobTVf04vujlPo2luskw&single=true&gid=0&output=html.
We are also looking for two additional CQS Sub-Heads (we have a few, but we’re looking for a couple more). These people would work closely with the three co-heads (Matthew D. Bannerman, Angie Anderson, and Jim Shields) developing the room and the project concepts, as well as staffing the room during the convention, itself.
If interested, please contact Matthew D. Bannerman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can start identifying panels you plan to attend. As we move closer to our 2010 convention, the schedule at will again be fleshed out with events and showtimes from around the convention, but for now it is mainly populated with just the panels from the Programming Department.
Guess Who’s Coming to CONvergence?In addition to our Guests of Honor, a number of creative professionals in fields connected to SF and Fantasy are planning to attend CONvergence 2010. You can find them listed here: http://convergence-con.org/attractions/pros/attendingpros.php. Look for them in programming and around the convention
