Furscience might come to a con near you!

Conventions are a huge part of the furry fandom. Cons come in all shapes, sizes, and flavours, and they’re a wonderful illustration of what the fandom is all about.

We attend conventions to do surveys and conduct interviews to gather more data about the fandom, and we usually host various panels and a science talk where we get a chance to disseminate and discuss our latest research findings, and take all of the attendees’ burning questions about their fandom–Furries love science!

Sometimes we come with large presence and our big beautiful Furscience Booth with tables and video screens, complete with a full compliment of Furscientists and their Research Associates and Assistants; other times, it’s just a single Furscientist, handing out surveys, talking science, and answering questions; and everything in between.

Furscience is always willing to work with organizers on a con-by-con basis to best integrate our presence into their conventions’ programming. From con-specific survey requests to Guests of Honour status to media liaison duties, we can work with each con to best suit their needs.

Cons are a great way to meet, greet, and interact with furries from around the world.
