Ces repas auront lieu dans la grande salle du restaurant de l’Université, qui nous offrira des menus « traiteur », qui feront la part belle à la gastronomie française et amiénoise.

Nemo 2018 is the name

For Eurocon 2018

 IN AMIENS, FRANCE, 19-22 JULY, 2018

AMIENS 2018 : BOTH A FRENCH AND A EUROPEAN CONVENTION

* A EUROPEAN CONVENTION

Since 1972, the European Science Fiction Society (ESFS) officialises at a variable rate (one or two years) European Conventions, or Eurocons. France, after hosting three Eurocons, didn't do it since 1990. We therefore propose to the ESFS the French candidacy of Amiens in 2018 for a European convention coupled with the French convention. The vote on this proposal was held in November 5th, 2016 in Barcelona, ​​during Eurocon 2016. It will be the 40th Eurocon.

*A FRENCH CONVENTION

Every year since 1973, the French science fiction fandom meets at a national convention. In 2014, it was "Nemo 2014," which was organized in Amiens (see the website). The location is chosen two years before by the participants of the antepenultimate convention. We therefore propose the candidacy of Amiens for the 45th French national convention of science fiction in 2018 to be voted by the convention participants of Bordeaux/Gradignan in 2016.
