Updated for ConnectiCon 2014:

Panel & Workshop Submission Guidelines

The first deadline for Panel/Workshop submissions is January 30th, 2014. At that time, we will begin the first round of scheduling events. We will have several rounds of scheduling, so do not be alarmed if you are not accepted in the first round as event space is highly dependent upon a number of factors.

Submissions will continue to be accepted after this date until the final deadline of April 15th, 2014. Anything submitted before April 15th will be considered, but bear in mind that the number of open slots will decrease continuously beginning on January 30th. Submit early to have the best chance of presenting!

Last year we had over 275 panels and workshops across 13 rooms. But, we had nearly twice as many submissions! As applicants, you will be notified if your panel is accepted as soon as it is scheduled. Panels and workshops that cannot be accepted will be given final notification of this by May 15th, 2014.

You must submit with your full legal name, matching your driver's license or other form of identification, to be considered for a panel or workshop. Failure to do so may result in panel cancellation, inability to pick up a badge, or delays in processing your application.

The Panels and Workshops Department will no longer provide event leaders with complimentary badges for the current convention year. Event leaders will earn their badge for the following year’s convention, provided that they show up prepared to present all of their events.

Applicants who are accepted and contribute three or more panel/workshop hours will receive a complimentary badge to attend ConnectiCon 2015 for themselves and one (1) co-presenter. The co-presenter must be someone that contributed to the panel/workshop at the time of presentation. If you contribute more than 4 content hours, an additional co-presenter badge may be made available to you.

Unfortunately, no panel or workshop presenters can be afforded any other benefits. Hotel reimbursements, parking passes, materials fees, and the like are not available. If you have questions regarding this policy, feel free to contact us at panels@connecticon.org.
