BiCon calls for session proposals

BiCon 2013 logoThe programme for the annual big bi conference BiCon is made up of sessions attendees run – and the organisers would like to hear from you soon if you’d like to run something.

The BiCon team say: “Got a workshop or session you’d like to run at BiCon 2013? Or an idea for a workshop that you’d like to exist but can’t or don’t want to run yourself? Fantastic!

“Suggesting workshops is really simple: your ideas go to the programme co-ordinator, who will collate all the suggestions and ideas, work out which can fit into the weekend, and put together a timetable.”

But that means workshop proposals have to be in by May 17th
Head over to their website here for details on how to put in a workshop proposal and what details you need to include.
This year’s BiCon will be held on 18-21 July in Edinburgh. It goes to a different city each year, and this is the first time it’s been in Scotland since 2006.

One month left to book for BiCon!

BiCon 2013 logoThis year’s biggest bi event, BiCon, is a little earlier than usual – and there’s just a month left to book if you want to stay onsite.

With BiCon being held in mid July, the booking deadline that bit earlier in the year.

If you want to stay on campus you need to get your BiCon booking in by a deadline of 10 May 2013. If you do not want accommodation, you can still book your place right up until 10 July 2013. Find out more on the BiCon website here.

BiCon warning: Book early!

BiCon 2013 logoThis year’s biggest bi event, BiCon, is a little earlier than usual – and that means you need to book earlier too!

In recent years BiCon has usually fallen at the end of August, with a booking deadline for those staying onsite either late in July or at the start of August. However this time it’s in mid July, and the booking deadline is further ahead of the conference than normal.

This means if you want to stay on campus you need to get your BiCon booking in by a deadline of 10 May 2013. If you do not want accommodation, you can still book your place right up until 10 July 2013.
