2020 Programming Suggestions
Penguicon's programming is, by and large, generated by our community. Your ideas, suggestions, and general brainstorming capabilities are combed through by our programming team (via this form) to generate a comprehensive and diverse weekend of so much awesome no one person can experience it all.
If you have an idea for an event, panel, birds of a feather, or gaming event then fill out this form and let us know. You don't have to run an event to suggest one, but suggesting one or more presenters help our programming staff make the magic happen. If you are trying to submit an event you will run, please use this form:
In the interest of full transparency, this year we are publishing the suggestions made by our attendees and whether those suggestions will make it to programming. No identifying information will be given - only whether or not a presenter has been identified.
Once your idea has been submitted, someone from the programming team will reach out to you. If you haven't heard back at the specified email that your panel has been accepted by March 3rd, we did not select your panel or could not find presenters for your panel idea. We encourage you to try again next year! If you have questions, you can always reach out to
Panel- single speaker, multi-speaker, or event about a particular topic presented to an audience without or without participation
Workshop/Demonstration-can include things such as panels where a craft or skill is taught, a food/drink panel
Computer Lab Panel-Specific event that would require participants to have computer access
Gaming Event- Scheduled Board Game events
Special event description (Also includes Music/Film/Spoken Performance): Large Event that falls outside of the normal paneling descriptions. Previous examples include Battle Bots, Geeky Burlesque, and Break-Out Rooms.
Programming Deadline is February 15, 2020
What is your email
What is your name
Please suggest a title for your panel/event.
Penguicon staff reserves the right to correct grammatical errors, clarify, prevent duplication, brevity, or enhance your title as we see fit to help bring more participants to your panel. We have found that interesting titles that have a play on words do well to draw in participants. For example: "The woods and your backpack" is not as good as "How to survive the zombie apocalypse with just the things in your backpack" for a panel on how to pack your backpack to have everything you need for a week in the woods.
Please give a brief description of your panel/event.
In paragraph form, please give a brief description of the presentation, panel, workshop, or performance you will be giving. Programming reserves the right to edit your description for spacing, corrections, or any other reason.
Do you have an idea of who could present this panel/event?
You can suggest currently announced Guests of Honor, Featured Guests, or people you know will attend Penguicon. Please do not suggest public figures that have not promised to attend Penguicon this year. Please provide a name and contact information if you have it available.
