2.30pm Saturday 1 October: Steampunk Panel – What is steampunk – and clockpunk, and dieselpunk – and why do we love it so?
12.30pm Sunday 2 October: – Steampunk Australia Panel – What does Australian Steampunk look like?
And there’s another steampunk panel, probably “The holy trinity of Steampunk” on Monday (which is a public holiday).
Not uncoincidentally, I shall be on the panels for the first two. . . wearing my best effort at steampunk maternity fashion.
There shall be photos, I promise.
The other major feature of the conference is, as always the Saturday night banquet “aboard the LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin in its first round the world trip August 1929. Dr Gillian Polack is once again designing a wonderful historically accurate menu and entertainment”.

It’s going to be incredible. Let me know if you’re coming to one of the first two steampunk panels, and I’ll keep an eye out for you. If you book your registration in the next eight days, you get an earlybird discount.
