A 3-day scifi, fantasy & media convention, next October 2-4, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency SFO.
Introduction
Convolution is a three-day, volunteer-operated science fiction, fantasy, and media convention. The inaugural event took place on the first weekend of November 2012 at the Hyatt Regency SFO in Burlingame, California, just south of the San Francisco International Airport, and was followed by successful events in 2013 and 2014.  
In our fourth year we celebrate the phenomenon of Fandom itself.  Convolution 2015 will feature guests, performers and vendors from a wide spectrum of the speculative fiction industry and community.

CONFIRMED GUESTS OF HONOR
Jackie Kashian - Comic, Podcast Host

CHARITY
826 Valencia

Convolution 2015 will provide a forum for creative professionals such as writers, artists, costumers, game designers and editors to network, entertain, educate, market their creations, and enjoy the company of people who love their works. For amateur creators and everyday fans, Convolution 2015 will present an opportunity to develop new skills, mingle with and listen to many of the professionals they admire, and to revel in the fellowship of the speculative fiction community.

Hands-on workshops and demonstrations will inform and educate both fans and presenters alike. A variety of games and tournaments will be open to attendees, including collectible card games and live-action roleplaying. Vendors and artists will display themed works and wares. Fan groups and other events similar to Convolution will be represented at information tables and parties.

Guest Spotlight: Marisa Garcia is the creator of Chunky Girl Comics, which is breaking down barriers and introducing the world of comics to Rosie, Sage, Sweet Pea and Candy, a group of ladies with curves in all of the right places that are determined to break the standards of what a typical superhero should look like. The Heavy Response Unit storyline follows four friends who go from being happy, well adjusted, overweight women in Northern California to having to fight for equality when it essentially becomes illegal to be overweight in America. Future projects for Chunky Girl Comics include an anti-bullying children's book, a Chunky Boys lines, and ultimately having the Heavy Response Unit transformed into a cartoon. Marisa has also started doing public and motivational speaking engagements, under the moniker, Superhero Within, for local organizations and schools. Follow Marisa and the Heavy Response Unit on Twitter at @chunkygirlcomix!

It's a toss-up between Wrath of Khan and the Rocketeer. The former is very nontraditional in its use of echoes and percussion, and the latter is just plain enthusiastic and inspirational.
