CON OF THRONES 2019

CALL FOR Programming 

Rally the banners! We are looking for a select number of knowledgeable attendees to present on their favorite subjects from the Seven Kingdoms and beyond at Con of Thrones!

Do you have a presentation, paper, panel, or workshop on a subject related to Game of Thrones or A Song of Ice and Fire? Do you have a particular theory about who Azor Ahai could be, a presentation on dragon lore, or an in-depth character study of Theon Greyjoy? We welcome all kinds of proposals from informal discussions to formal academic presentations.

If you have a burning desire to share your ideas and research, this is the place to tell us about it so we can help you make it happen!

Please note that panels will be limited to 50 minutes other than in extraordinary circumstances.

If you have any questions regarding programming please send your queries to programming@conofthrones.net

The deadline for submissions is March 13, 2019.



FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there one format I have to follow? Does it have to be a panel?

Not at all! You create the program you want to run. It can be a panel, a roundtable, a lecture, a meetup, a singalong, or whatever you envision! Just make sure you specify what you’d like to create in your application (i.e. “I’d like to moderate a panel of four people…”)

Helpful hints: a panel consists of 3–5 people with a moderator who leads a discussion, and is often followed by a Q&A session with the audience; a roundtable consists of 4+ people discussing a topic amongst themselves as an audience listens and sometimes chimes in; a lecture consists of one or two people speaking to an audience.


Can I create a panel where I bring a celebrity?

No, we’re sorry! These are programs that Con of Thrones attendees develop on their own, we won’t be able to facilitate celebrity guests for you.

My presentation works best as a PowerPoint. Will I have access to a projector?

If your program idea is selected, Con of Thrones will work with you to make sure the room is set up for your session. Most programming rooms will have a basic audio package, including microphones, and a few will have projectors.


What if I’m not registered for Con of Thrones?

Con of Thrones presenters will be given a complimentary day pass for the day of their programming. If you have already purchased a registration, our team will be in touch to adjust your registration following acceptance notices.
