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. Non-Icelandic guests of honour at the conventions were US Hugo award winners Elizabeth Bear and Naomi Novik, and Swedish Crawford award winner Karin Tidbeck.
