Worldcon 75

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

Programme Schedule Information

Note: What you are about to read is a preliminary of Worldcon 75 programme schedule. There will be changes in programme times, rooms and participants – both additions and cancellations. There will especially be additions to Signings, Strolls with Stars and GoH programme as well as details about the Games that will be available.

The programme will be continuously updated until the very last moments of the convention, so please do check for changes before making any definitive plans! If you think there is something/someone missing from the programme, please do not panic: it is likely we are still waiting for confirmation for something and are unable to publish an item before we get it.

The programme contains items about everything that falls under the very wide umbrella of science fiction, fantasy and horror: books, comics, television, films, science, writing, costuming, music, academic track, fandom, fan writing, awards – and there are also programme items specifically for children (6–12-year-olds).

Signing up for Kaffeeklatsches, workshops and larps takes place in the info desk. You may only sign up for one Kaffeeklatsch/workshop/larp day and only for the Kaffeeklatsches taking place on the same/following day. There will be a limited number of places for each Kaffeeklatsch, workshop and larp and a waiting list, so if you cannot make it, please let the info know so somebody from the waiting list can take your place.

Information for programme participants and moderators is available on the Programme Participant Information page.

As always, Programme Division can be contacted at
