Worldcon 75

The 75th World Science Fiction Convention, 9-13 August 2017, Messukeskus, Helsinki, Finland


Worldcon 75 will have hundreds of hours of programme during its five days! Presentations, panels, workshops, signings, readings, gaming, music, dancing, and more! The topics will include (but are not limited to!) literature, science, media, games, costuming, writing, TV and films – almost anything that falls under the very wide umbrella of “speculative fiction”. There are also programme items planned specifically for children and young adults. The programme participants will include authors, scientists, other pros as well as fans.

We have recieved hundreds of great ideas for programme and hundreds of great people to be in it! Thank you all – there would be no convention without you! Now we will start selecting and scheduling items as well as conctacting people! More information will be released during the spring and the final programme will be released before the convention itself!
