Participate in the programme

Panel discussions, talks, presentations – send us ideas, and take part yourself

Participants are the heart of the Dublin 2019 programme, and we plan to assemble a talented, engaging, and knowledgeable group who represent the best that our diverse and creative community has to offer. This is YOUR convention. Be this your first Worldcon (or convention!) or your tenth, whether you see yourself as a traditional or transformative fan, a new creator or returning professional, we are interested in hearing the ideas that you have to offer. You can engage with us via volunteer service as a programme staff member or as a potential programme participant.

Please also tell us your ideas: we would love to hear what you have to suggest, including topics that touch upon diversity, speculative literature and art from around the world, and perspectives from people that have long gone unheard. We will be following the best practices compiled from the most recent Worldcons when reaching out to members of underrepresented communities, while also developing our own outreach approaches.

Our academic programme track has published a call for papers and posters. The academic track provide an opportunity for scholars to present critical reflections and research to an interested, knowledgeable and active audience.

Dublin 2019 is sure to be magical, and we are looking forward to creating a fantastic programme with you.
