A 3-day scifi, fantasy & media convention, next September 26-28, 2014 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 a successful second year in 2013.  
In our third year we explore science and science fiction.  Convolution 2014 will feature guests, performers and vendors from a wide spectrum of the speculative fiction industry and community.

CONFIRMED GUESTS OF HONOR
Tanya Huff, Author
Jeff Sturgeon, Artist and Illustrator
Michael A. Stackpole, Author

CHARITY
Chabot Space and Science Center

Convolution 2014 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 2014 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.

If you haven't seen the trailer for one of last year's Convolution guests Toby Froud's new short Lessons Learned, watch it now! Hopefully its success will lead to a feature film.
