Open Source Software & Science Fiction Convention

Penguicon is the only convention in the United States that brings together the often-overlapping communities of science fiction fandom and Linux User Groups.

In addition to educational panels on areas of interest to science fiction fans and both professional and beginner-level panels on Linux and Open-source software, Penguicon participants can enjoy an anime room, filk (the folk music of science fiction fandom), swordfighting demonstrations by Aegis Consulting (a local martial arts school), dancing, gaming — live action role-playing game, computer, board and cards — and more.
