Welcome to Intersection, the 53rd World Science Fiction Convention. I know you are keen to get out there and explore the wonders of the science fiction universe, but you'll find it a lot easier to cope with if you take the time to read the first few pages of this guide. How to use this pocket programme This pocket programme is your guide to the convention: it contains the what, when, where (but not the why) of Intersection. In it are listed all the programme items, maps of the city, the hotels and the SECC. As a help to visitors there is also information on local restaurants and shops. It has been produced in a ring binder format so that you can carry it in your pocket/bag without the pages becoming mangled, and so that you can remove pages to insert updates or simply to make it lighter!

First Time? If you haven't been to a science fiction convention before then the morning fan programme items in Hall 4 of the SECC will give you an excellent introduction to what we are all about. Everyone here is a potential friend, so don't be shy. Talk to people, get involved in anything that's happening. This is a fun event, so have fun!

Warnings and Admonitions The convention is a fun event and everyone attending expects to have a good time with no hassles. The easiest way to ensure this is to follow these simple rules:

  1. Wear your badge so that it is easily visible at all times. It is your entry token to all events and convention areas. Keep it safe and do not allow anyone else to use it.
  2. Obey the instructions of stewards or convention staff. Remember that they are volunteers and should be treated with great respect, even reverence, as they are working at the event at which they should really be relaxing.
  3. Keep your belongings (bags, clothing etc.) with you at all times. Unattended bags may be removed by convention security. (See section on lost property.)
  4. If you have a costume which includes a weapon of some sort (sword, gun, laser blaster) then you will have to leave it outside the convention or you will be requested to leave. The only exception to this is if you enter the Masquerade and have cleared the weapon with the Masquerade director (Gytha North) in advance, and you must carry it securely wrapped to and from the Masquerade.
  5. Do not take food or drink into the Artshow or Dealers area. This is to prevent accidents damaging expensive goods.
  6. You may not eat any food or drink brought into the SECC from outside. All food and drink must be obtained from the catering outlets within the SECC Also, do not bring take-away food into the hotels as this upsets them and can create a litter problem.
  7. Do not smoke in any of the programme or display areas. Smoking areas are clearly signposted. If there isn't a sign, assume that you may not smoke.
  8. Smile at people, talk to strangers, get involved in what's going on. Volunteer to do a shift as a gopher. Everyone has a badge with their name on it, so you're on first name terms with them the moment you meet.
  9. Have fun.

Convention Information Desk Information is available at the desk on the SECC concourse near Hall 5. It is manned from 10.00 to 20.00 each day. There are noticeboards and signs around the desk giving programme changes, where the parties are and lots of other useful information. You can also pick up copies of the daily newsletter The Voice of the Mysteronshere. The newsletter has news of changes to the programme and other info about people, events, parties etc. It is available at least once per day at points scattered throughout the SECC .

Voodoo Board If you want to contact someone then you can leave a message for them at the Voodoo Board beside the Information Desk in the concourse of the SECC. It works like this: you write your message on a card, put it in the box in the correct alphabetical section, then stick a pin beside the person's name on the board - that's the Voodoo part.

Lost & Found If you lose or find something in the SECC, go to the Information Desk. If the Information Desk is closed than you should try the Ops Room which is manned until 01.00. In the evening party hotels the hotel reception desks will handle lost & found enquiries. If you require a replacement copy of this guide or have lost your badge then you should go to the membership enquiries desk in Hall 1 on Thursday and Friday and in the main concourse from Saturday onwards.

Notices If you want to stick any notices on walls in the SECC please use Blu-Tack, not tape or pins.

Childcare and Kidcon are in Hall 4. Childcare costs #1.00 per child per hour. Please note that baby changing should be done using the toilets in the childcare area of Hall 4.

Registration Opening times for registration are Thursday 10.00 - 21.00, Friday, Sat, Sun, 10.00 - 20.00 and Monday 10.00 - 17.00.

Please note that the programme is subject to change and you should check the Information Desk and convention newsletter for details of changes. This is the programme as available 2 weeks before the convention. Please read the following notes which will help to guide you through the complexities of a 20 stream programme spread across five days in four venues.

The listings shown as grids give only the time, location, title and code number of each programme item. To get more detail on any item you should look up its code number in the section that comes after the grids. Note that there are 2 separate types of grid: one for daytime programme in the Moat House and SECC, the other for evening pogramme in the Moat House, SECC, Central Hotel and Forte Crest. These are followed by the other programme items like signing sessions and kafeeklatsch.

Feedback There is one programme item not shown on any of the programme grids, and that is the daily Feedback Session in the Hall 4 Performance Area at 1500.

Map of Glasgow Transport Co nv en ti on b us se rv ice Buses will leave the SECC and travel in a loop round the main city centre hotels about every 30 mins. You can pay the driver for each trip or buy a "season ticket" from the bus company desk in the registration hall in the SECC (much better value). Extra buses will be run

after the evening spectaculars to help get you away from the SECC.There will be a small bus running a shuttle service between the Forte Crest and Central Hotel at night until 3am. The times of first and last buses will be tied to the programme in the SECC. Look for times displayed at the Information Desk. There is also a normal city bus service which runs every half hour during the day between the SECC and the City Centre. Fare to city centre is 47 pence on this bus.

Taxis phone 332 7070 or 332 6666. There is a taxi rank outside the SECC and also outside the Central Hotel. You may hail black cabs in the street. 4 in a cab will be cheaper than using a bus.B i k e s

for hire from West End Cycles, 16 Chancellor St, phone 357 1344

Parking The SECC car parks cost #2.00 per visit. Car parks in the city centre are shown on the map by the symbol P. They are expensive but safer than leaving a car on the street. Most hotels either have their own car park or overnight cheap deals in a nearby multistory. Note that the

Forte Crest hotel has very limited spaces outside the main entrance but has loads of free (if you get a token from reception) parking at the Scott St car park (formerly Anderston Bus Station).

Advice for Drivers. Do not park on double yellow lines at any time. Do not park on single yellow lines except at times indicated by plaques on posts or wall nearby (usually no parking between 8.00 and 18.00). Illegal parking usually results in a #20 parking ticket. If you cause an obstruction

then the police may tow away your vehicle and it then costs about #100 to get it back. The speed limit on urban roads is 30mph = 50kph unless signposted differently. The national speed limit on motorways and dual carriageways outside towns is 70 mph = 115kph unless a lower limit is signposted.

Please do not drink and drive. Telephones Telephones use 10 pence, 20 pence, 50 pence and pound coins. Phonecard phones require a special card available from newsagents and some other shops. Some phones accept credit cards but this is costly. A local call costs 10 pence for 3 minutes at peak times (8.30 -

18.00).The operator is reached by dialling 100. Directory enquiries is 192. (No charge from payphones).

Emergency services: Dial 999 If you need help from Police, Fire, or Ambulance they are all reached by dialling 999. No money required.H o s p i t a l s

It covers most of the restaurants in the City Centre and the West End, with a few others thrown in for the more adventurous.

This list is provided as a guide only and comes with no guarantees. It was edited by your pocket programme book editor (Ian Sorensen) from a more detailed list provided by Bruce. Sorry if there are any mistakes or omissions - they are probably Ian's fault. Please check for up to date details with the restaurants themselves.

A star * beside the name means that it comes with a hearty recommendation from Bruce, either because of the quality of the food or the originality of the experience.

Price Bands (#): The price bands are based on the price of the cheapest 2 course meal (Starter & Main Course) available on the menu. The dearest priced meal is usually about twice the cheapest. Remember that drinks will be extra. It is usually best to book a table in advance, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Many places have a "pre-theatre" menu available between 17.00 and 19.00 with a more limited selection but at a lower price - typically #7.50 for a 3 course meal. Worth asking about when booking.

Most restaurants will accept Visa, Access and Mastercard. Many accept Diners and Amex. Check before ordering. Kosher FoodThere are no kosher restaurants in the City Centre or West End. SomeKosher food is available in many supermarkets and shops like Marks & Spencers. The Jewish Information & Resource Centre's phone number is 620 2194.

Key to Guide Within each type of restaurant entries are in order of price band, from Band A up to F.Types of Restaurant (in the order they are listed)

Bistro/Brasserie, Chinese, Fast Food, French, Fish, Greek, Burgers & Pasta, Icelandic, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, Pizza, Pubs, Scottish, Thai, Middle East, USA and Vegetarian.

There should be sample menus for many restaurants on display at the Information Desk. Price bands for cheapest 2 course meal are shown under the heading #.Band A = Under #3, Band B = #3 - #5, Band C = #5 - #7, Band D = #7 - #9, Band E = #9 - #11, Band F = Over #11

Cheap Kids Menus are available at most Fast Food outlets. A few other special offers are listed in the notes. Vegetarian dishes (Veg)The number of vegetarian dishes on the normal menu is given under the heading Veg by the following code: N = none, F = a few, S = some, L = lots, A = All. Opening TimesMost restaurants will open for lunch at around 12.00 and may close at 15.00 to reopen at 17.00 for dinners. 23.00 is a fairly normal closing time. Unfortunately Bruce has all times in 12 hour format, not knowing this guide would use 24 hour format. Sorry for any confusion this causes but there hasn't been time to change them. If in doubt, phone the restaurant and check times.

Closed DaysMost restaurants are open all 7 days unless noted differently by a code under the heading Closed. BreakfastsIf the restaurant serves breakfasts then there will be a Y under the heading Brk. Handicapped AccessIf access is particularly difficult then a N appears under the heading HC. NotesAt the end of each section there are notes giving extra information about restaurants marked with a number under the heading N.
