Institute for Comics Studies

The convention provides a projector with a laptop computer connection (VGA). There should also be a laptop on site for your convenience with PowerPoint, Keynote and QuickTime. We can thus accommodate DVDs, CDs, laptops, and flash drives. If your laptop is a Mac, please bring your own video adaptor.

If your paper is accepted, do not pay for convention registration. (If you have already paid, we may be able to get that payment refunded to you.) ICS presenters attend Comic-Con with professional passes, with no registration fee for ICS or the respective fan convention.

You may also bring one guest who can attend with free registration. After submissions are accepted, we will then ask for your guest information. A guest pass may not be sold or otherwise transferred to anyone other than the individual whose name appears on it.
