About the application

Terms & Conditions

  • The earlier you submit your panel, the better chance you have of approval and a good time slot. No panels will be approved after that date. Simply fill out the form below and submit to us for consideration.
  • You will receive one pass for the day of your panel issued to the applicant.
  • Programming can be discussions, lectures, presentations, or interaction sessions where you can discuss and showcase your favorite fandom! We are open to any ideas.
  • All additional panelists Must Have Their Own Pass for the Convention. No additional passes will be provided for panelists, so please make sure that each panelist has purchased a pass for the event.  Upon approval of your panel, you will get a discount code for additional panelists.
  • Panels should reflect an aspect of the fandoms we represent. GalactiCon does reserve the right to reject panels if we feel the material is not appropriate for our convention.
  • Make sure your panel is appropriate. GalactiCon is a positive event, which means that your panel cannot be demeaning, rude, embarrassing, or derogatory to anyone.
  • GalactiCon does not accept panels that require an admission fee. All panels are to be open to all registered attendees; attendees should only need their convention badge to attend a panel.
  • Notify us immediately of any changes or problems as soon as they arise.
  • It is the responsibility of the panelist to meet with the Programming Operations team at the convention at least 20 minutes before their panel starts if they wish to use computers or other devices in their panel. Please note that GalactiCon does NOT provide laptops in the panel rooms. We do provide adapters upon request based on availability.  Be prepared to connect to HDMI or VGA. We strongly encourage you to have a back-up plan because regardless of how well you or we plan issues can always arise.
  • Be respectful to GalactiCon staff, volunteers, guests, attendees, and the other panelists.
  • Start on time and end on time. All panels should end 10 minutes before the hour. This will give you enough time to clean up and remove your materials so the next panel can start on time.
  • GalactiCon will notify all panelists if their panel has been accepted by November 1st, 2023.
  • Every attempt will be made to ensure that the Panelist/s will be scheduled for their preferred day.
