Program & Events Listing

Programmed panels, presentations and other events will commence at 3.00pm on Friday 4th August, 2006. Convention registration opens from 1.00pm in the Foyer.

Our Program Co-Ordinators have finalised the Continuum 4 Convention Program. In addition to the confimed program times and highlights on this page, we are pleased to present Version 3.1 of the full C4 Program grid. Unforseen changes aside, this should be considered the final version of the program to be run over the three days of the convention.

View and download the complete three-day Program Grid (Version 3.1) here as a printable PDF file (142KB).

Note: You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view this file. If you are having trouble viewing the PDF, please contact us and we can provide a MS Word version.

The program is now closed for submissions. A big thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time and expertise to sit on panels or give presentations this year. You will be emailed shortly with further information, but if you have any questions or concerns please contact our Program Co-Ordinator.

The Fan Fund Auction

This year Continuum will be hosting a Fan Fund Auction, with all proceeds to be donated to each seller's nominated Fan Fund. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise money for the Fan Funds, with great bargains and unusual finds for buyers. All sellers must complete the Registration Package and present these documents along with all lots they are offering for auction to the Continuum Registration Desk prior to 12:00 noon on Saturday 5th June. The Registration Package is available in either PDF format or an editable Microsoft Word document.

Fan Fun Auction Registration Package: PDF file (102KB) or Microsoft Word document (178KB)

Please Note: Due to time constraints, there will be no private sales in the auction this year.
