2013 Panel Form and Panelist Information is Up!
« on: February 23, 2013, 09:24:59 AM »

You can find the info page here: http://www.fanime.com/events-and-exhibits/panels/panelist-information/

Our panelist information page has a lot of updates this year, so please be sure to read it before submitting, even if you've been a panelist in previous years.

If there are clarifications or questions about what's in the 2013 Panelist Information page, please feel free to ask them here. For more specific questions about panels you are submitting, I recommend e-mailing us instead. You can reach us at panelsATfanimeDOTcom.

will panelists be notified of acceptance or rejection before registration prices go up? I know it's a short turnaround time but if I won't be eligible for a discounted badge I'd like to know so that I can save a little bit on my badge price.

I had hoped so, but at this point, scheduling is still in the beginning stages. We're hoping to get things started earlier next year so that everything can happen in a better order.

For the record, most of the time panels are not actually 'rejected'. We do have a limited amount of hours in which to hold panels though (based on the number of rooms and how many staff we have, etc.) This year, we have space for 196 hours of panels. (Maybe more if we have so many submissions that opening earlier or closing later seems desirable and can get the staff to support the hours.)

58 hours of panels have been scheduled at the moment - roughly a little over a quarter of the schedule. What's been happening in the last couple of years, is that we've had far more submissions than we could possibly fit into the schedule. So it wasn't so much that we rejected a lot of panels, as that we didn't have space for them all. We're hoping that having a 4th room this year will help with that.

When will they be getting back to everyone on wether on not they've been accepted, rejected or wait-listed?
I know last year I was meant to be in a panel, we never really recieved a reply or anything, and I'm assuming it was wait-listed.
Anyway, I've got panelists making cosplay plans around this, as well as my own plans, it just seems like a long time to wait with no reply, we submitted 2 or 3 days after the opening date.

I would like to know as well when they'll actually be getting back to us about panels.  I've seen a few updates over on the panels Twitter, but nothing in the past couple days.  I have a lot of plans for this convention, and not knowing my panel status really runs the risk of throwing a wrench into those plans.  Also, it would be very helpful to not know the week of the convention that my panel was approved, thus requiring me to scramble to fine-tune it at the last minute.

Actually, last year everyone did receive a reply. It's possible that the only reply was the invitation to the wait list and that it was filtered to the spam box. We might recommend adding panels@fanime to your contact list to avoid that.

We are not in the wait list yet. Panels are still being scheduled. We are creating the schedule as quickly as we can.

There were a lot of delays in getting things going this year, so staff has been slammed pretty hard once things did get up. We recognize that it's not ideal (it's not fun for us either), but please bear with us and we'll get everything sorted as quickly as we can.

When we have a date by which we are sure everything will be wrapped up, we'll announce it on the twitter. Sorry that things are running rather late this year.

If you need an update on a specific panel, please drop us an e-mail.

We've also sent out this evening an email to all the panelists who haven't yet received time invitations from us.

If you submitted, but haven't received anything at all from us - try checking your spam folder. If there's nothing there either, we recommend emailing us ASAP. panelsATfanimeDOTcom
