SATURDAY ONLY:

PROGRAMMING 3 (Trinity VII)
Saturday, 12pm: Predicting the Near Future
The James Bond wrist-watch phone is here, the Star Trek tablet is here, and many trends in technology happen faster than we can adapt to them. Therefore it is quite a daunting task to write science fiction in world which IS science fiction today. What is in our future? Given a 25-year timeline, our panelists outline what they think the near future will be like.

PROGRAMMING 3 (Trinity VII)
Saturday, 1pm: Size Matters! Monsters in Fiction
From “Pacific Rim” to Godzilla, monster movies have made a comeback. However, apocalyptic monsters are not always seen to be unfriendly to humans – perfect examples of this are “How to Train Your Dragon” or the Pern series by Anne McCaffery. Our panelists explore the evolution of monsters from predatory beasts to boon companions.
Note: Giant mechs may or may not be involved.

AUTOGRAPHS (Dealers Room)
Saturday, 3pm: Angeline Hawkes, Stina Leicht, Christopher Fulbright

MAIN PROGRAMMING (Addison Lecture Hall)
Saturday, 4pm: Star Wars vs Star Trek: The Epic Battle!
Truly, the epic battle of the ages is this one. Storm Troopers versus Red Shirts, Phasers versus Blasters, the Federation versus the Republic, the comparisons are endless – as are the spin offs. However, this is a literary convention, rather than a fandom convention, so we pose this as the question to be answered: What world in each universe is the best WRITTEN or IMAGINED, and why?
Note: Things may devolve. No fighting, please…
