We are even still looking for more panelists. If you are a panelist, you will be partially, or completely comped for your admission to AnimeNEXT. There can be a little wiggle room for reimbursement if a panel presentation runs longer than normal. The deadline for submitting your interest to be a panelist is May 8th. http://www.animenext.org/node/247
After the staff meeting on Sunday, several staff are trying to round up some folks that they know who do AMVs to try to host, or co-host an AMV panel or two. I am hopeful there will be a response, because I really don't have time to work on a panel presentation during these next two months. Again, I can sit in and help out, but I cannot create a full on presentation.
