It's the 20th ConFusion, and we're doing everything we can to make it a memorable celebration. Most of the usual features will return: Panels and Workshops; Art Show and Auction; Hucksters; Amiga Room and Seminars; Gaming; Computer Room; Banquet; Masquerade Ball; round-the-clock Con Suite; and more SF professionals than you can shake a stick at (which, incidentally, we don't recommend, as it tends to irritate them).

Special anniversary programming will include a reunion of the original Stilyagi Air Corps (circa 1973-1977) and a heretofore unrevealed glimpse at the origins of the convention they founded. Another special treat --- the return of Illuminatus (Wayne and Zita Gillis), the original ConFusion lightshow. And there are more surprises being planned - to be announced soon.
