Philcon 2020 has switched to an online convention format. The convention will take place using Zoom Webinars, Zoom rooms and Discord.
The Philcon program guide is now available.
You can learn how to navigate to the portions of Philcon that are taking place in Zoom and Discord by viewing the quick reference portion of the information page of our guide on Konopas.
IMPORTANT: Refresh or reload your copy of the Konopas Program Guide every few hours. Changes, hopefully on the small side, are occurring to the program, but you have to take steps to get a new copy on your device. Think of it as exchanging an old pocket program for a newer version. You can use any method you prefer, including Command-R on a Mac and F5 on a PC.
There have been reports in the last few days that the Konopas Program Guide is not functioning correctly on the most recent Android devices. If the guide links are not clickable, please attempt to access the guide from some other device, such as a computer or a non-Android device. Some people have reported that if you click "my-con" and then click on "program", it works. If you still have problems, please contact us.
The Philcon 2020 Discord Server is now available. Please go to the quick reference information page linked in the previous sentence to learn how to join and use the server.
You can participate in our Writing Workshop by submitting a manuscript (until all slots are full). For more information, please visit our Writing Workshop page.
There will be no in-person Philcon at the hotel in 2020. The current limitations on meetings imposed by the State of New Jersey would not have permited Philcon to proceed at the hotel.
All hotel reservations which have been made in one of Philcon’s hotel blocks will be cancelled automatically by the hotel, although you should check to make sure that has happened. If you made a reservation outside the Philcon block, or through a third party vendor, you will have to contact them to request a cancellation.
If you have purchased a membership in Philcon 2020 already, it will be carried over to Philcon 2021. You may request a refund of your membership in Philcon 2020, or if you are interested in supporting our virtual convention, you may donate your membership. The Philadelphia Science Fiction Society is a 501(c)(3) organization. We can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
