IceCon is a science fiction, fantasy and horror fan convention held in Reykjavik every other year since 2016.
In 2016, an international SF convention was held in Iðnó in Reykjavik, called IceCon 2016, where various aspects of the genre were discussed. These included the ways in which contemporary issues are reflected in stories written today, as well as a special focus on Nordic traditions within the genre. The convention was well received, and we were extremely happy with the outcome. With wind in our sails, a second IceCon was held in 2018, working with the same format, which was also a success.
We are now planning the third SF fan convention in Reykjavik in 2020, and one of the guests of honour is the newly announced Hugo prize winner, Mary Robinette Kowal.READ MORE
