The following week, SLACTIONS will run as a hyrbrid online/physical conference taking place at a range of (unconfirmed) locations around the world as well as in a range of (unconfirmed) virtual world locations. Slactions is also running a workshop as part of VS-GAMES in September. While the submission deadline for VS-GAMES has already passed, the Slactions workshop deadline will be on June 13th. The deadline for submissions to Slactions itself is June 30th, giving a little more time to prepare for this.

Slactions also has a Machinima festival, and you can find more details here.
