Please email us at with “A/V Request – Your Submitted Panel Name” in the subject line, and what type of equipment (e.g., a screen, projector, etc.) you require in the body of the email.

Once again, we ask that only those who submitted the panels which made the survey email us with these requests. To view the entire list of panels, please log in to your WisCon account, click “Sign Up For Programming”, then click the full list of proposed panels link.

  1. 16 hours too late. That’ll teach me not to move this time of year next year.

    Eh, it’s not as if anyone needed to hear from me, anyway.

    Just smh at the inevitable Murphyness of my finally finding time during moving to get to the page, only to be half a day late and a dollar short. Oh, well.
