Programming Submissions Extended till April 24th!

We want to make sure that everyone’s ideas for panels, workshops, and roundtables will be included for voting for this year’s Wincon, so we’ve decided to extend panel submissions till April 24th!

To submit a panel for Wincon, you only need 3 things!

1) A registration for this year’s convention!
2) A passion for your topic.
3) A couple of key points that you want to talk about or questions to ask.

And that’s it! It’s super simple.
So if you’ve got an idea, go ahead and submit it! But remember, you only have until the 24th to do so!
And if you want to see what’s already been submitted, we have a spreadsheet for that.
