Preliminary Program Grid for Mike McPhail
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Mike McPhail 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 6:00 pm: How Not To Get Published (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Neil Clarke, Mike McPhail, Hildy Silverman, Ian Randal Strock, Michael A. Ventrella (M)
Editors will discuss all the things authors shouldn't do if they want to be published. For instance, submission guidelines exist for a reason. And no matter how brilliant your story is, threatening the editor will reduce the probability that it will be published to zero.
|Saturday 10:00 am: Does Hard Science Fiction Have to be Opaque to Non-Techies? (Ends at: 10:55 am) Frederick|
Panelists:Jack Campbell - John G. Hemry, Mike McPhail, Nalin A. Ratnayake, Ian Randal Strock (M), David Walton
Panelists will discuss how writing about quantum computing, string theory, nanotechnology, genetics, chemistry, rocket science, etc., can be done in a way that is scientifically accurate, yet understandable by people who have no science background past high school and maybe college distribution requirement. E.g. making Bose-Einstein Condensate understandable to someone who never got past "physics for poets."
