Panel Submission

It's that time again: Panel Submissions! We need your help! We want ANY and ALL suggestions for panels, meetups and anything else you can come up with! We can't promise anything too wild and crazy, but will do our best to get interesting ones lined up!

How to Submit

Either email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , post on the forums to discuss and plan with others, and/or fill out the form below.

Submission Example

Panel Name: Cosplay 101
Panel Leader: Yes
Panel Type: Presentation
(If the description hadn't mentioned the projector/screen and table for completed costumes, it would of been considered a Discussion panel.)

Panel Description: A beginner's panel to everything Cosplay. Creating a costume from pictures/film, acting like the character, etiquette for Cosplaying at a convention and other aspects will be discussed. Also a chance for people new to Cosplay to meet with veterans and amateurs, share ideas/suggestions and most importantly have fun! I think we may need a projector and screen to display manga/anime images and photographs of completed costumes from my laptop. Also a table would be handy to lay out some of our completed costumes and pictures. We're hoping to focus on taking characters out of manga and turning their costumes into reality, but we figured we'd cover all the angles.

All fields are required.
Panel Name
The name should reflect what your panel is all about and what will be covered/discussed in your panel.


Panel Leader
Are you volunteering to run this panel?
No No, but I will help run it. Yes


Panel Type
What type of panel are you submitting? Pick the type that most reflects the style and setup of your panel.
Discussion A question and answer (or open discussion) format with a "panel" of interesting or informative people that the audience can ask questions with a general overall topic. Setup is usually some microphones on a table and some chairs set out for the audience.
Presentation A presenter talks on a specific topic of interest and there may be a slideshow or "Show 'N Tell" with examples. If time allows, a question and answer session may follow the presentation. Setup is usually some microphones on a table and some chairs set out for the audience. A screen/projector and extra table may also be requested.
Workshop A hands-on audience participation panel, generally with a short explanation/demonstration segment at the beginning and then the rest of the panel is spent by the audience doing the activity. Setup is a few rows of tables and gathering supplies for the activity. Sometimes there is a small fee to cover the cost of supplies.
Demonstration Similiar to a Workshop panel but the audience watches and asks questions while the panel leader demonstrates/performs the activity. The audience observes but does not participate in the activity (except as extras or guides where needed). Setup is a table (or sectioned-off area at the front of the room) where the demonstration will take place and chairs for the audience.
Other Are we missing a general type of panel? Explain why your panel doesn't fit into one of the other panel types in the Panel Description below.


Panel Description
Please be as descriptive as you can about your panel idea (in 500 word or less).
