We've been running since 2002; we're the youngest speculative fiction convention in San Diego. Our primary focus is on literature, but we also address gaming, art, media, science and society in our programming. We were the first convention to put our proposed panel topics online in a voting-enabled format to get the fans' input. Each year we focus part of our programming around a central theme, chosen based on our Guest of Honor's work.
In honor of Larry Niven, our theme this year is Alien Cultures. As Wikipedia puts it, "The creation of thoroughly worked-out alien species, which are very different from humans both physically and mentally, is recognized as one of Niven's main strengths." Join us in exploring the many alien species of SF and their languages, laws, social structures, religions, traditions, arts and mythologies.
