The 68th World Science Fiction Convention was held 2-6 September 2010 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.  Our Guests of Honour were Hugo-winning author Kim Stanley Robinson, Academy Award-winning Melbourne artist Shaun Tan, and dedicated fan Robin Johnson.  Melbourne has also hosted Worldcons in 1975, 1985, and 1999.

The annual Worldcon brings together science fiction and fantasy professionals and fans from around the world.  All forms of SF&F are represented - film, television, comics, costuming, gaming, and especially literature.  Programming includes panel discussions, lectures, science demonstrations, films, readings, and autographing.

The 69th World Science Fiction Convention, Renovation, will be held 17 - 21 August in Reno, Nevada, USA.  Details are available here.
