What’s On: The Swancon 40 Convention Program
Final Program: available online and on mobile apps (Livecon)
The live, up-to-date Swancon 40 Program is available here
Note: if the link displays a Wednesday as the first day, please re-load the page – it is a known issue.
There are always last minute program changes due to emergencies and last minute cancellations. The Program on Livecon will be updated during the convention, however the app will need to be refreshed by the user (YOU) to see any changes.
There will be a pinboard in the Fan Lounge area that will be ONLY for official program changes – a printed official program will be placed on that inboard and updated with changes. Program participants will be emailed with changes affecting them.
