When/where is KiScon?
The first entirely online KiScon took place in 2022 and was a great success. Therefore we will host another online KiScon in 2023; save the date: 3-5 Nov 2023!
How can I register for KiScon 2023?
Please note: registration is a 2-step process: 1) click “Join” to enter the KiScon area on Conline, then 2) click “Registration” to sign up for our 2023 convention. For a detailed explanation with screenshots, you can download this handy How-To (pdf).
We recommend that you use a fannish name for your Conline profile, ideally your badge name (if you usually put both your real name and your fannish name on convention badges, only use the fannish part). We have also prepared a detailed guide for setting up or editing your Conline profile.
If you need help with setting up a Discord account and joining our KiScon Discord server, please see our Discord walkthrough with screenshots (pdf).

How much does it cost to attend KiScon?
What does a KiScon membership get me?
Are there single day tickets to KiScon?
I have an awesome idea for a panel, game, or other fannish activity...
I have never been to a convention before and plan to come alone. Help, will I feel awkward if I don't know anyone?
Can I still support the con even if I can't make it to the event myself?
However, while we offer supporting memberships also for KiScon 2023, we hope that its format as online event will enable more people to attend the convention in the virtual space.
