Hotel Update
DoubleTreeWe had hoped to have had all reservation confirmations from the hotel out by this date, but as has been the course for this year there were snags.

Programming Update 
Greetings from CONvergence Programming. We’ll be invaded by the British (ahem) in just a few weeks! Here’s some good information for you:

  • The programming panel schedule is being pushed out to our site. This site will be the official schedule throughout CON, so keep it handy. Note that not all panels will be up right away.
  • We are looking for moderators for panels. If you’re interested, please tell us We will only assign you to at most two panels (unless you tell us you want more). Just like panels, these count for volunteer hours.
  • We are REALLY going to need programming general hosts this year. If you want to volunteer, please tell us at and include when you are available (our Programming FAQ page lists the shifts) Just like panels, these count for volunteer hours.
