Balticon 56 was a convention held May 27–30, 2022, at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, MD. The GoHs were Nancy Springer, Jen Midkiff (music), and Steve Stiles (Ghost of Honor). Odera Igbokwe was to be Artist GoH but withdrew. There were a number of Special Guests.

The Heinlein Award was presented to David Gerrold.

Burke Incident[edit]

"A long-time panelist," author Stephanie Burke, was removed ineptly mid-panel on Sunday after an apparently spurious complaint that she broke the code of conduct by her talk at the Friday panel, “Diversity Readers and Why You Need Them.” All Fandom was Plunged into War followed by an investigation by BSFS and partial apologies from the chair, Yakira Heistand, and programming head, Lisa Adler-Golden, who had publicly yelled at Burke; for details, see Burke’s statement and various reports at File 770.
