jUnicon 1999

June 18-20

In a collaboration between members from SFSF and Sigma TC, there will be a bigger Science Fiction convention in Stockholm that hopefully will attract visitors from the whole of Sweden.

Convention Hours:
The convention halls opens Friday at 17.00 hours, on the 18:th of May, and the programme will start at 18.00. Both Saturday and Sunday will open at 11.00. Saturdays programs will end at midnight and the last day ends at 17.00 (approximately)

We have arranged Nacka Conference Center for this convention. There we will have a larger hall that easily fits 200 persons, and two siderooms which will host parallel programmes, like the movie programme. There is a big open area by the entrance that will host the cafeteria, the bar and be the general meeting place for our guests.
A (rather large) map is available here together with instructions and a smaller version of just the map here.

Guests of Honor:
Martin Easterbrook has accepted and we can count on his participation in panels and discussions. Also, Bertil Mårtensson will be there for sure, and this writer of both SF and Fantasy will hold speeches and join panels. The third GoH is Hans Arnold which commits himself, an art exhibition, and hopefully the seldomly shown horrormovie "Fetknopparna".

More programme:
Apart from the GoH's, we have "go" on several of the panelists, such as: Jonas Ahlberg, Johan Anglemark, Ahrvid Engholm, John-Henri Holmberg, Mats D Linder and Hans Persson.
We will have panels and presentations about moral and ethics in SF, prehistoric aliens, medical SF, Baltic SF, the future cities, computers, food etc.
We will also have some short presentations of writers, and of course a big book auction. We'll be auctioning the best books from Kjell Borgströms collection and books that you bring along.
Some of the fannish programmes include a quiz and discussions about webpublishing vs. paperfanzines.

The Banquet:
No real convention goes without a banquet. Main course and desserts for only 100 SEK. (Liquids to the food isn't included) We would appreciate preorders for the banquet if you decide to eat with us, and if possible, prepayment to this SFSF-account (PG):
