Balticon Programming features panels, readings, and workshops for fandom in all its forms. Join us for anything from panels on how to get published to what’s new in the world of paleontology, or sit in our maker space and try your hand at a new craft.

The program schedule is on-line. The site lists the program schedule, program participants, and lets you create a personal program schedule of items you are interested in.
