@party – June 18-20, 2010

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

A new demoparty is starting up near Boston, MA. The name is @party, and they really have their act together. Dates and venue are already posted, as well as a great description of what a demoparty is, for those of you who feel you don’t “get it”.

If you think you might be interested in participating in @party, they’ve requested we share this Survey. Please fill it out, and read more about @party.

Froggy and I plan to go, and hope to see you there!

CFP Update

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

The second early acceptance deadline is approaching on December 15th, and we’ve not seen as many submissions as we usually have by now. That said, we’re also working with a few new groups and lining up more invited presenters, which means less general speaker slots will be available.

Our submission guidelines have changed a little bit this year so please make sure to read them before sending in your submission.

Remember, no idea is too “out there” or “weird” for us! Submit today!

T-Shirt Design Contest

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

This year Notacon is opening the T-Shirt Design Contest much earlier than in past years. This is in response to the comment about pre-ordering a shirt without knowing what it will look like. Designs are now due by February 1, 2010. This way the t-shirt design will be published at the same time that the full speaker list becomes available.

    Also, we’ve upped the ante with new prizes this year. The winner of the contest will receive:

  • A free shirt containing their design in their size
  • $50 in Notacon Merchandise
  • A full badge set from Notacons 1-6
