03.14.13 // GeekGirlCon ’13 Programming Submissions

geekgirlconAre you a professional in a geeky industry? An astrophysicist or mathematician? Do you run your own geeky business? Can we learn from you about the history of women in gaming? Do you have a unique perspective to share about being a woman in the sciences, horror, comics, television, film, robotics, costuming, or stunt industries? Are you an artist or illustrator? A pop culture “herstorian” or cultural critic?

GeekGirlCon will feature informative and entertaining programming on topics ranging from geek lifestyle issues to the sciences to popular culture. We are seeking engaging and thought-provoking proposals from professionals for panels and presentations on topics such as, but not limited to:

Feel free to propose something we didn’t think of! Previous con programming is available for perusing programming sessions we’ve accepted in the past.

To be considered for acceptance, proposal submissions must reflect the mission of the convention – to promote, celebrate, educate, mentor, encourage, and empower the female geek – and should make an effort towards inclusivity.

We are interested in presentations, screenings, readings, workshops, mentoring sessions, and roundtable discussions from women and men in geeky professions. There must be an understanding that these topics be addressed with a women-centric and woman-positive focus and with attention to issues of diversity.

GeekGirlCon is committed to representing women geeks of all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, creeds, physical and mental abilities, and familial statuses. Proposals must reflect a commitment to this as well.

Submissions are open until 11:59pm PST on May 15th. Past participation in programming is not a guarantee of acceptance for 2013. We are looking to diversify our programming from previous years, so be innovative!

If you are interested in proposing a panel or presentation please fill out this form.

  1. [...] varied as science, media, business, sci-fi, comics, film, computer programming, and sports. You can pitch your ideas at their website through May 15. This year’s Geek Girl Con will take place at Washington State Convention [...]

  2. I am a Seattle-based stand-up comedian and I think it would be wonderful to have a comedy show that showcased female comedians that love “geeky’ things. I do a lot of material about pop culture and I have friends who are nerds about literature, comic books and a range of other things you have mentioned on this site. It’d be women positive and it would be funny. I am involved in the comedy community here so I could easily get a line-up of fantastic talent.

    I look forward to hearing from you!
