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.

Chair-Man has a dilemma: He has accepted a #lipsyncbattle  challenge against Baycon's Co-Chair, but has yet to choose a song.

WHAT BALLAD, ANTHEM OR DITTY SHOULD CARRY HIM TO THE ULTIMATE MELODIC VICTORY!?

Mr. Chair, are you more of a Patter song kind of person, or a Ballad crooner? Can you say lots of words really fast, or are you more of a hold that awesome note kind of guy?

Either way, I should think your options are best located within Jonathan Coulton or Weird Al Yankovic...

How do we overcome the Internet trolling that sometimes infiltrates our fandoms?
As you probably heard by now, Joss Whedon quit Twitter yesterday after being bombarded with ridiculously cruel, outraged tweets about "Avengers: Age Of Ult

Banning and actual criminal charges filed against the worst offenders. If there were consequences for this behavior then people wouldn't do it.

Do you too suffer from "spoilerphobia?"
Plus: What if you are Team Michael for <em>Jane the Virgin</em>?

The +Library Bards are coming to Con-Volution 2015! We're excited to have them performing and appearing on panels at con.

The Library Bards are a nerd-centric parody band consisting of #BonnieGordon  (+ABC Television Network's #TheQuest ), +Xander Jeanneret (+King of the Nerds on TBS) and Jake Kaufman (Composer: +Shantae the Half-Genie Hero+Shovel Knight - not appearing at Con-Volution). They partnered with +TheOneRing.net -- the premier fan site for all things #LordoftheRings  -- to debut their first music video ("Gandalf," a parody of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off") in conjunction with the release of the third and final #Hobbit  film. The video has hit nearly 26,000 views, and steadily climbs each day.

Check them out at their website www.librarybards.com!

Which book/tv show/movie introduced you to Internet Fandom? Was it The X-Files?
When The X-Files debuted, nobody knew the small, weird show would be a success. But it had something better than a marketing blitz: It had the internet as a way to connect people who wanted to believe.

I do like a good Steampunk novel, that would be my first choice.
