Programming participants will receive free admission to Ro-Con as long as they participate in at least three panels, or run one workshop, presentation, performance, or role playing game session.
Types of Programming
Ro-Con programming will have a variety of formats.
This is the four or so folks behind a table, holding forth and discussing a topic before an audience. While audience questions are welcome, this is primarily a discussion which the audience watches.
This is similar to a panel except that everyone is involved in the discussion. Roundtables will take place in the boardroom-style room and will generally be limited to about 12-15 participants. A program participant leads the discussion, but all of part of it.
This type of program item tends to be a bit more directed than a panel. One presenter provides a planned presentation on a topic in their expertise.
A workshop is an interactive form of presentation. Instead of just listening to the presentation, in a workshop, the audience is learning and doing something hands on.
