A Guide to the Week’s Activities





Greetings Citizens!

CitizenCon 2947 is almost here. On October 27th Star Citizen celebrates the fifth anniversary with you, the people that make all this possible. In addition to the annual presentation by Chris Roberts, we’re pushing the boundaries of what a CitizenCON can be in new and exciting ways.

We’re expanding the scope and format of our on-stage presentations to deliver you more information and content; packing additional rooms with interactive demos to showcase new and upcoming technology while letting those in attendance get their hands on it, filling a room with dozens of PCs so attendees can play Alpha 3.0, and broadcasting all afternoon on Twitch so we can bring everything CitizenCon has to offer to those of you who can’t attend in person.

We also recommend you follow along through the week on social media channels for a variety of updates, BTS images, and more.

Let’s see what CitizenCon 2947 has to offer. All times are local Frankfurt time, October 27th.

14:00 – Attendees Arrive

Guests are welcomed into the majestic Capitol Theatre. Built in the early 20th century, this historical landmark provides the perfect backdrop for CitizenCon 2947: Exploring New Worlds.

15:30 to 20:30 – Five Presentations

Featuring many of the greatest minds from across the UEE, experience panels on the most recent ground-breaking research and technological trends in the fields of kinesiology, xeno-linguistics, privatized colonization and more with a special address by Innovator of the Year Silas Koerner and an inspiring look at the spacecraft being hailed as a “game changer.”

21:00 – Electronic Access Presents: CitizenCon Keynote Address

Whether it’s visiting a city you’ve never traveled to before, charting a star system newly discovered, or even battling on virtual planets in a sim, Exploring New Worlds can mean many different things to many different citizens. Our keynote address will strive to get at the heart of why exploring our universe is so important, and how each of us can be a part of it.






Tell Us More About Those Presentations


Coverage of the day kicks off shortly after the doors open, leading into the Opening Address on the main stage at 3pm with Chris Roberts, then throughout the day we’ll be broadcasting all five presentations live on Twitch with replays available on YouTube shortly thereafter.

The five presentations include:
