Loncon 3 (Worldcon 72) - August 14-18, 2014 - ExCel, London Dockland, England by
(Loncon 3 14 August 2014 / ) - Worldcon, or more formally The World Science Fiction Convention, is a science fiction convention held each year since 1939 (except for the years 1942 to 1945, during World War II). It is the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (or WSFS). The members of each Worldcon are the members of WSFS and vote both to select the site of the Worldcon two years later and (since 1955) to select the winners of the Hugo Awards, which are presented at the convention. This year the convention is being held in London, England and is called Loncon 3. (Source: Loncon 3)
Shamrokon - Aug. 22 - 24, 2014 - Dublin, Ireland by
(Shamrokon 22 August 2014 / ) - From the website: Shamrokon is a large fandom convention happening this August in Dublin, Ireland.
It is a special once off event, as it is the European science fiction convention which is held in a different country each year, with people travelling from all over the world to attend. Shamrokon is the 36th Eurocon and the ESFS Awards presentation will take place at the convention.
Shamrokon is a 3 day event, run by scifi, horror and fantasy fans for other fans. It is not a corporate run event, how ever while the committee are volunteers we have nearly 2 centuries of experience running events and conventions between us. This means those who sign up to attend, become memebers and get to take part in the discussion panels, can contribute and suggest programme items they would like to see happen. We are expecting over 1,000 people to attend from 28 countries see website for details. (Source: Shamrokon)
