From the Chair

We’re thrilled to be hosting the 76th World Science Fiction Convention in San Jose! Thanks to everyone who supported the bid, and thanks, too, to everyone who cared enough about Worldcon to invest their time and resources in the Site Selection process.


We’ve got some stellar Guests of Honor already confirmed, and will be adding more in the near future. I hope you’ll be astounded by the guests we’ve invited!


San Jose is a place that rewards and celebrates creativity. Where people, in their day jobs, advance science and technology, only to go home and create more. Where being smart and nerdy is the mainstream. We have a great partner in Team San Jose and the McEnery Convention Center, home to a number of our local and regional fannish events.


Please join us over the next two years while our team at SFSFC builds your Worldcon of the Future! There will be many opportunities (and some surprises) along the way for you to join in as we make it a reality.
