Lask week, all members who’ve marked an interest in program participation during their registration process, were invited to PlanZ, our scheduling and program tool! Through PlanZ, each member can send in suggestions for program items, as well as apply to panels they’d be interested in participating in.
Here, you can let us know all the things that help make scheduling run smoothly, while also making participation more comfortable. As an example: if you want to participate, but don’t have any specific panel or subject in mind, you can let us know about your area of interest or expertise under “General Interests”. If you know for sure that you’ll only be attending for the weekend, you can mark that under “Availability”. If you want to use a headset instead of a mic, due to holding a mic for a longer time becoming difficult, let us know by filling in “Personal Details”.
Currently, you can mark your interest for panels only, but the Eurocon program has a vast array of program items to look forward to, including:
• Guest of Honour interviews, kaffeeklatsches and author signings
• Workshops in historical dances, Elvish language (Tengwar) and FILK-writing
• Lectures on Swedish Dystopias, Political Fairies and the subject of Genes and Reproduction in Contemporary Science Fiction
• Guided tours of Uppsala
… and much, much more!
There are guides to using PlanZ on our webpage, in both English (https://eurocon2023.se/welcome-to-planz/), and Swedish (https://eurocon2023.se/valkommen-till-planz/). And as always – you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or if you’d like us to add you as a PlanZ user now.
We look forward to your suggestions and your participation!
