Panel / Event Questions

How do I submit panels for this online event?

You can submit panels for the convention online via our panel submission form here. Panels are now closed for new submissions.

If I am a panelist, how will that work virtually?

We will be using a combination of presentation methods for panels & events. This will include a mix of Discord Voice Channels, Zoom/Google Meets, pre-recorded panels, and direct feeds via RTMP using services like OBS. If you dont know which is best for you, Please don’t hesitate to reach out. We will work with you to help set up one of these methods. We will be offering a few different types of panels, and this will depend on which platform we help you set up on:

  • Presentation Only: This allows you to present your panel without having others being able to talk over voice. This is good if you don’t need engagement during your presentation, but want to open to a Q&A.
  • Workshop Style: This will allow you to communicate and talk with your other attendees for the panel. This is great for getting the most engagement with your panel attendees.
  • Pre-Recorded: If you cant be at the event, or you prefer, you can record your panel for playback.

I can’t join a panel voice channel in Discord

Some panelists are using Discord to stream their panel to the video stream. In some cases, the voice-channel will be open after the panel is complete to allow for engagement & questions. Please view the livestream to watch any active panels.

Will my panel be featured live on stream?

Potentially! We will have a mix of “Main Stage” events that will be featured during the Livestream and side rooms for personal engagement. Because of the nature and uncertainty of live productions, “Workshop” style panels will not be available for streaming online.
