Summer Glau has been announced as a guest to this year's Ottawa Comiccon, that will be held from May 10 to 12, 2013 at the Ernst & Young Centre in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
Convention goers will have the opportunity to ask Summer Glau questions at her Q&A panel, have a photo taken with her at her photo session and get a signed picture at her autograph session.
Summer will be appearing on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12 only (A detailed schedule will be available in late April.)
UPDATE 1: Summer lost her passport and was not able to make it to 2013 Ottawa Comic Con, she was still able to join the Firefly panel via skype.
UPDATE 2: Summer was at Ottawa Comicon 2014. Check out the photos in the Gallery.
The following tickets are available for purchase at Ottawa Comiccon website:
Photo op: $50
Other guests at Ottawa Comiccon include Gillian Anderson (X-Files), Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Batman), Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Felicia Day (Joss Whedon's Internet musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Dave Prowse (Star Wars), Jewel Staite (Firefly) and Nicholas Brendon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer).
Our friend Danny went to last year Ottawa Comiccon; you can read his report and watch photos at karazor-el.com.
As usual, don't forget to tell us if you plan to go to the con and if yes don't forget to take lots of pictures.
More informations on Summer Glau's appearance at the convention as they come, as well as photos and reports from con-goers will be posted in the dedicated forum thread (check it regularly).
Side note: we learned a few weeks ago that Summer will also attend Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con on June 2013.

Thanks for posting this. This site really is a one-stop shopping site for information about Summer! I am seriously considering going to this one as it is about 400 km from where I live in Toronto. And while this may be hard to appreciate for our European friends where everything is so wonderfully close, here in Canada, we subject ourselves to ridiculously long drives to go places. A trip of 400 km is a day trip. It can take three days to drive across Ontario, my home province.
OK, enough geography. I will try to make it to see her. Ottawa is nerdsville central and geek heaven as it has a relatively large high-tech community. She should find a very appreciative audience there.
But whatever she does, she should not, for any reason, neglect to bring warm winter clothing. Summer as a season in Ottawa is two months of rough sledding when the snow cover starts to thin out a bit. It is also bug season in early May when parka-wearing black flies regularly consume small animals in flight and they have been known to carry away smaller humans. Bring bug repellent.

Thanks for the explanations!
I must say i had to look at a map to see where Ottawa lies. And while we're talking about geography, Ottawa is not that far from France...if you live in the self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France called Saint Pierre and Miquelon (see map).

Ottawa Comicon producers are currently gathering the cost of celebrities autographs and photo ops from guests' agents and managers. Depending on the celeb, expect prices for autographs to be from $25 to $60. Photo ops average around $40-$60.
