Picocon is the annual one-day Science Fiction & Fantasy convention run by the Imperial College Science Fiction society (ICSF). It usually takes place on a Saturday in February, in Imperial College's Student Union. We try not to clash with other conventions around the same time.
It is a small (hence the name), affordable and convenient convention for students in or near London, and London fandom. Registration usually opens at 10am, first event 10:30, finishing up in the evening around 7-8pm. At a Picocon you will encounter:
* Guests of Honour (Paul Cornell, Cory Doctorow & Liz Williams) doing talks and panels
* Destruction of Dodgy Merchandise (you're welcome to bring along donations)
* All-day LAN gaming
* Stalls selling books and other stuff
* General socialising room, also with games organised throughout the day by the Wargames society (e.g. Fluxx)
* Quiz and silly games
* Student Union bar
Membership for the whole day is:
£4 for ICSF members
£6 concessions (with valid ID) - students/DHSS/OAP/children
£8 full price
ICSF membership is not required for attending Picocon.
