>Did you have to submit a panel/syllabus to a convention committee for approval?
Nope, only a very brief (few paragraph) description and name of the panel, as well as who the panelists would be.
>Was you panel & description printed or listed in a convention schedule/handbook? (requesting pics for victory)
It was, I don't have the panel book on me, but here is the page on the website:
>What was your attendance estimates, with a rough estimate on the gender split? Average age? Ethnicity?
About 15 people when we started, about 12 when it ended. A couple of people came and left halfway through, but for the most part the audience stayed. There were only about 300 people at the convention total and the panel was at 8PM, after the con began to die down.
Average age was pretty young, probably late teens, early twenties. To start we had two women in the audience and one African American person. Everyone else was white, but we did have three other girls join the panel halfway through.
>Did you have any follow-up discussions as the panel ends? (that meatspace period where door volunteers are filing people out, tech guys come in to setup the next panelists, and an attendee has more questions/comments where they can approach you directly off the record)
Yep, we talked a little bit before and after the panel. A few of us also went to the bar afterward.
