WorldCon 2015 is honoring Sir Terry in a wide variety of ways, including Discworld themed panels, events, dances, games, fan meets, exhibits, art and more. With 6,000+ attendees it's a great way to meet Discworld fans from all over the world.  The Terry Pratchett memorial panel will be on Thursday, August 20th.
