The 68th World Science Fiction Convention will be held 2-6 September 2010 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Our Guests of Honour are Hugo-winning author Kim Stanley Robinson, award-winning Melbourne artist Shaun Tan, and dedicated fan Robin Johnson. Melbourne has also hosted Worldcons in 1975, 1985, and 1999.
Au Contraire is the New Zealand National Science Fiction Convention for 2010. Not sure what a science fiction convention is? See About. The convention will be taking place in Wellington over 27-29 August 2010 - the weekend before the WorldCon in Australia. This is to allow fen travelling from overseas to attend both conventions while in Australasia.
