My Worldcon schedule, let me show you it  
Here's where you can find me at Anticipation, the World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal, August 6-10 (which is, um wow, really soon).

Thu 20:00: Overpaid, Oversexed and In Our Time Zone
Curtis Potterveld, Cynthia Huckle, David D. Levine (M), Paul Cornell, Perrianne Lurie, Ronald Oakes
What's going on with Dr. Who? Has becoming a sexual being made him a more or less interesting character? Just how far can they go with this?

Fri 13:00: Writing Workshop K (2 hours)
David D. Levine (M), Jenny Rae Rappaport
Critique session for previously submitted manuscripts.

Sat 11:00: Fan Editors Panel
David D. Levine (M), Guy H. Lillian III, Jeanne M. Mealy, Joseph T Major, Steve Green
Fanzines have different audiences, frequencies, means of distribution, and editorial attitudes. Editors explain why they publish a fanzine. Thinking of publishing a fanzine? Encouraging words will be offered. An optional lunch outing follows the panel.

Sun 9:00: I left my heart in Clarion East, West, South
David D. Levine, Maura McHugh, Steven Popkes (M), Nalo Hopkinson
Workshops can get in your blood, and they can provide both life changing and shattering events. Panelists discuss the six-week Clarion workshop, including highlighting differences between the different Clarions.

Sun 11:00: Writing in a Culture Not Your Own
David D. Levine (M), Emma Hawkes, Joshua Palmatier, Kaaron Warren
How does a writer get into the head of a character from a different culture, race, planet, gender? How can writers include diversity in their writing without using stereotypes? Or should they not try at all?

Sun 14:00: Kaffeeklatsch
David D. Levine
A chance to ask those burning questions.

Sun 15:30: Author Readings (1.5 hours)
Aliette de Bodard, David D. Levine, Karin Lowachee

You may also see me listed in the program on a couple more Sunday panels, but that would have meant six and a half solid hours of programming in one day and I had to beg off.

Just because SOMEONE has to say it: "Burning questions: I hear they have a topical cream for that now."

Impressive schedule. Enjoy worldcon. I had the best time at one of them. Keep waiting for one to come closer to us.

Pardon me, jpeace pointed me your way. Is there any overlap at all between this event and Montreal Pride Festivities that weekend? Montreal is a wonderful spot for any venue.

I'm not aware of any planned joint activities between the two events, but you can see the complete convention programme at http://www.anticipationsf.ca/files/uploads/Convention_Guide_Draft.pdf. Hope this helps!
