illogiCon is a community based convention dedicated to Science Fiction in all media. But what does this actually mean?
1. Community: We are a convention that is run by, and for, people who are brought together by their desire to share an interest in Science Fiction, more commonly known as Fans.
2. Science Fiction: We take an inclusive view of Science Fiction and Fantasy. If it includes giant robots, conniving wizards, daring space captains, or evil AIs and chain smoking anti-hero hackers, it is science fiction.
3. All Media: Science Fiction comes in many forms. The written word (including the humble book), live action TV and movies, animated, comics, the visual arts, pod casts, and forms of media that we haven’t even invented yet. It comes from all across the world, from Japan, and Britain, from Russia and the United States. Science Fiction is the genre of possibilities, it is only right that this is reflected in the way that Science Fiction is experienced.
Filk-friendly, at least to the extent that our rather small space allows.
