Welcome to Continuum 4

Welcome to our website! If you’re already a member of Continuum 4 or have attended one of our first three conventions, then you’ll have some idea of what to expect from us in 2006. If not, you probably have a whole bunch of questions, not the least of which may be …

What is this Continuum thing anyway?

Continuum is an annual Melbourne speculative fiction and pop culture convention celebrating creativity across genre and media. From hard-edge science fiction to high-flown fantasy, comic books to film noir, high culture to sub-culture … we sink our teeth into it all!

This year our convention will commence on Friday 4th August and conclude late on Sunday 6th August, 2006. Continuum 4 aims to provide a wide range of traditional SF convention activities as well some new ones, all complementing our theme, Retrorama: the future was then. We are very pleased to have Shaun Tan, Charles Stross and Margo Lanagan as our Official Guests for 2006, who will feature along with numerous other speakers and panellists in a fabulous line up of panels, presentations and special activities.

Continuum Wants You!

Do you have an idea for a panel or presentation you’d like to see at Continuum 4? Even better, do you have an idea for a panel or presentation in which you’d like to be involved? Our 2006 Program is currently in production and our Programmers would love to hear from you. Please email us with your ideas and suggestions and help make Continuum 4 our best convention yet!

And, of course, we are always seeking volunteers to assist with Continuum 4, both prior to and during the convention weekend. If you are a member – or are planning to join – and wish to help out, please write or email our Volunteer Liaison who will contact you with further information.

Still have some questions?

Have a browse through our website, which will be regularly updated from now until Continuum 4. You’ll find heaps of info about our fabulous guests, the venue and Melbourne itself, along with reports, highlights and photographs from our previous Conventions. There’s a comprehensive Convention FAQ but if there is anything else you need to know or are unsure about, please feel free to contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Not a member yet? Download a current Membership Form and post it off to us before the next rate rise. It’s going to be an absolutely spectacular convention in 2006 and we hope to see you there!

Best wishes,

Ian Mond & Mitch
