Chicon 7 produced a number of publications, both before and at the convention.
Chicon 7 produced five Progress Reports in total. The first four of these were produced in paper format, with PDFs available for those members requesting electronic publications. The final Progress Report was electronic only and was provided in the form of a web page
on this web site. PR5 included key information to help members have a trouble-free arrival and start to their stay in Chicago.
All of the Progress Reports can be downloaded from our Progress Reports
