Brief Introduction

Jointly hosted by China Science and Technology Museum, Future Affairs Administration, and Global Innovator Conference(GIC), supported by APEC China Business Council, APSFcon is the first regional SF convention based in  the Asia-Pacific Area. The main purpose of the convention is to facilitate the exchanges and communications among the writers, movie makers and scientists from the Asia-Pacific Area (including One Belt One Road countries), based on science fiction cultures and highlighting science and  technology communication .

We’re planning to invite guests of honor, guest speakers, and panelists from over 20 countries, including China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Australia, New Zealand, Philippine, Czech, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, US, Canada, etc. The topics will cover all the aspects of SF industry, such as writing, publishing, translation, film adaptation and any other related fields. We would like to see more collisions and communications among SF professionals and professionals from the fields such as aerospace and AI. At the same time, APSFcon is also a gathering place for all SF fans in the Asia-Pacific area, no matter you’re a famous writer, or a common SF fan.

Using the model of Worldcon as a reference  APSFcon is adapted to meet the local needs. There will be speeches, readings, panels, workshops, exhibitions, signings, and art shows. We provide stages to all the attendees, and anyone could be the center.
