Programming refers to the scheduled, staff-sponsored events at a furry convention.

Programming can refer to a wide variety of events, such as panels, contests, masquerades, and can include events such as a Dealers Den, Artists Alley, and an Art Show. However, a convention staff member in charge of programming usually is responsible for the scheduling of the master events calendar of the convention, a map of what, when, and at what location events will happen, and for selecting topics for panels and identifying speakers to host them.

Smaller conventions, such as Oklacon 2005, usually have little or no structured programming as far as panels go, whereas larger conventions, such as Mephit Furmeet 9, have a large enough attendance to support multiple tracks of panel programming, tailored for specific audiences, such as Greymuzzles.
