Preliminary Program Grid for Inge Heyer
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Inge Heyer may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 8:00 pm: Science Literacy In Fandom (Ends at: 8:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:D. Douglas Fratz, Inge Heyer, Sam Scheiner (M), Bud Sparhawk
Science fiction readers frequently encounter equations and plots that rely on the latest science. But do fans really know more science than the public? As writers/editors, how much science do you assume the reader knows and how do you decide what to explain? Do you think many readers skip the science parts or treat science as magic? Do you avoid certain ideas/topics that may require too much science? How can we educate more fans about science?
|Saturday 12:00 pm: SF On Television (Ends at: 12:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Inge Heyer, Perrianne Lurie (M), Elaine Stiles, Lawrence Watt-Evans
There's lots of sf and fantasy on television these days. What should we be watching and what older shows have outlived their prime? Does cable, Internet, or broadcast have the best shows?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Future Technologies (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Charles E. Gannon, Inge Heyer (M), Thomas McCabe
What future technology might exist? How do writers predict what types of machines will exist in 50 or 1000 years? Is far future technology or nanotech simply magic in disguise? What writers do you think do the best job with future technology?
