Full sessions programme

This will be published in a booklet which you'll receive when you arrive at BiCon. In the meantime, see the outline timetable below for a guide to the daily structure.

We have just published the "information booklet" which contains general information about BiCon, plus directions, venue plan, etc. Most of this information is already on this website, but if you'd like to view (or print out) a copy it's here: Information booklet (1.6Mb pdf file, not available) As with the programme booklet, you'll get a copy when you arrive at BiCon. If you've asked for a copy by post we'll be sending it out w/e 14th August (with any luck…)

The sooner we get these in, the sooner we can plan the schedule & print the booklet, and that makes it easier for all of us!

Subject-related matters from previous years (that we would love to see again) have included: alternative, BDSM, gender/transgender/cisgender, massage, polyamory, legal, neurodiversity, relationships, psychology, sexuality, religion, fun, games, art. It's always nice to see anything new also.

Please feel free to propose sessions even if they are similar to those already mentioned above. We would ideally like to have more sessions proposals than we can fit into BiCon so that we can provide as much choice as possible. Thank you!
