Submit an Event
Submissions ARE OPENBy hosting a Panel, Workshop, Game, or other Event, you help make the convention fun and awesome. We are excited you are considering sharing your knowledge, humor, or talent with the rest of the con! (And event runners/panelists, like volunteers, are rewarded with perks and free swag at the convention).
Early = Good!
We will cut off submissions after we have filled the schedule. All submissions after that point can not be considered for placement. If yours is accepted, you will receive a confirmation email with the day and time that you are scheduled a month before the convention.
Give the Otaku's what they need!
Topics of all Panel, Workshop, or Events should be related to some aspect of Japanese culture. These aspects include: Anime, Art, TV, Movies, , Manga / Books, Music [J-pop, J-rock, etc...], Fashion, Food ,Language, Martial Arts Video Games , etc. If it is felt that your submission does not fit into the scope of Japanese culture or is inappropriate, we reserve the right to reject your submission.
Scheduling is a wonderful thing!
First and foremost we ask for your flexibility with scheduling. You will be able to request time preferences. Our programmers will do their best to accommodate you. If you are scheduled and are unable to attend, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible so that we may make other arrangements.
"I need, I want... Gimmee ...!"
If you require special equipment for your Panel, Workshop, or Event please let us know in your submission. We may be able to help you from strapping your big screen TV on the hood of your car and hauling it to the convention.
If you have any questions, please contact us, and we will do our best to be of assistance to you! To submit an event, go to our submission form.

FAQs for PanelistsCan my panel be any length?
Almost all panels are going to be an hour long. Our form requests information on how long you need for setup, but this typically only helps us in deciding when to place your event - it's very unlikely that you'll be given a slot longer than an hour. Only exceptional events that have emailed email@example.com can get permission.
Can I pick the time for my panel?
Our form asks for your preferred times, but we can not guarantee any time slot for you. We will assign spots based on your preferences, then based on availability, but we can not move other people's panels in order to accomodate yours.
What equipment can I have for my panel?
Usually a projector and a microphone is the most we can offer. We can not give you a laptop or other equipment to use. If you have a MAC or other laptop, you need to have all the equipment to connect it to a VGA projector.
Are all panels accepted?
We try very hard to include everyone in our convention. Sometimes we don't have the space, time, or equipment to accomodate every event.
When do I find out if my panel is accepted?
We will email you with the time and day of your panel as soon as we know, which is about 1-2 months before the convention.
What do I get for doing a panel?
Mostly, the love and adoration of our staff and all our attendees. We want panelists who run events for the love of their favorite show, event, or game. However, in recognizing that doing panels can take quite a lot of time and energy, panelists who do more than four panels (or more than four hours worth of programming) may qualify for free admission at our discretion (max two people per four panels). Generally this is for people who spend a lot of time practicing or preparing to make great events.
Sometimes we may give out prizes and thank yous to superb panelists.
