* Please note: although all authors have confirmed their appearance, many things can change over the next six months. We will keep this page updated with current attendees and add panel themes and subjects nearer the event. We will also have more information on moderators and guest panellists.

We will move most authors between the two locations over the lunchtime break, so that everyone can stay in the same room. If you move at lunchtime you’ll be seeing the same people twice! All attendees will receive a GollanczFest 2017 goody bag. If you attend multiple sessions you may request additional bags on the day, one per ticket.
