daily programme
the sixth international bisexual conference

The IBC6 programme booklet is getting closer and closer to printing.

From past BiCon experience, we should just about know what it should say on about August 31st, but fear not, it will be ready in all its glory for the start of conference on 24th.

Meanwhile, the provisional timetable is growing below.

We now have over 70 workshops and sessions scheduled (usually a UK BiCon has about 40) which means we are on course for a thoroughly excellent weekend!
