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 – and we are still looking for volunteers to be in the programme!

We are hoping to release a preliminary version of the programme before July.

Do you have questions or comments about the programming? Please contact us at
