Emojicon will take place on November 4-6 in San Francisco at the California College of the Arts. It will be a fun event with lots of emoji-related activities, including Emoji Charades, Emoji Spelling Bee and an Emoji Film Festival.

Among the exhibitors at Emojicon: Timberland (which will have emoji tattooed boots), GE's Emoji Science Fair, Taco Bell's emoji taco truck, Panda Express. We're looking for lots of emoji-related vendors to make it fun and exciting.

Let us know what you are interested in doing at Emojicon. We want to make Emojicon accessible to all budgets, so we can give scholarships and discounts in exchange for donations of volunteering.
Emojicon is a community-driven event for the people, by the people, that first took place in San Francisco in November 2017.
We invite the Emojicon community to join us in developing the program for Emojicon, including Emoji Learn, our panels, workshops and discussion track and Emoji Play, our art and interactive exhibit space. 

Proposals may be on a variety topics related to emoji. Emojicon is an inclusive and welcoming environment and encourages diverse participation and speakers. 

Emoji Play suggestions may include emoji art installations, demos or fun interactive exhibits. Be creative and use your imagination! 

Emoji Learn suggestions may include technical discussions, workshops, talks on emoji policy, arts, culture and society.
