Penguicon, April 28-30, Southfield, Michigan

Penguicon is a combination scifi convention and open source conference that's been running annually for 15 years. I'm a guest of honor at Penguicon 2017 (my schedule), as is MeFi's own Cory Doctorow (schedule) and Ada Palmer (schedule) whose work's been discussed on MetaFilter several times. Other speakers include MeFi's own John Scalzi. [more inside]

WisCon 40

May 27-30: WisCon is a feminist scifi/fantasy convention celebrating its 40th year. This year's Guests of Honor are Sofia Samatar, Justine Larbalestier, and Nalo Hopkinson. There are discussion panels, structured activities, parties and events, $1 childcare, a Con Suite with an array of snacks, safer spaces for People of Color and for trans/genderqueer people, and a dedicated Quiet Place where you can catch your breath and decompress. In particular I'm working this year's Saturday night Tiptree Award charity auction - promises to be a fun show.

DragonCon 2015 Missed Connections Thread / Meetup Coordination

Labor Day weekend is almost upon us again, and that means DragonCon in Atlanta. (Please don't call it Dragon*Con, they had their *-hole removed two years ago at no small expense.) Even though an actual organized MeFi meetup is not likely to survive everyone's various convention plans, we can at least use this thread to talk about those plans. NOTE: like last year, the time and place listed are for the registration line, the event itself lasts Thursday-Monday, and is spread across 5 high-rise hotels and a nearby convention center.

MeFites going to WisCon: I suggest we meet up during the Strange Horizons tea party, Sunday afternoon. Free light snacks and tea, hobnobbing with authors and editors.
