HELLO EVERYBODY !
IT WAS A REAL COMMOTION FOR THE NEMO 2018 TEAM FOR THE PAST TEN DAYS. SO, WE HAD TO PLAY RADIO SILENCE. WE MUST APOLOGISE.
INDEED, LAST WEEK, THE NEWS SUDDENLY FELL THAT, FINALLY, BECAUSE OF VARIOUS DELAYS ON THE BUILDING SITE, WE COULD NOT HAVE THE VISA OF THE COMMITTEE OF SECURITY TO ORGANIZE AS PLANNED THE CONVENTION ON THE SITE OF THE CITADEL.
IT WAS THEREFORE URGENT TO FIND A PLAN B. IT IS NOW DONE, THANKS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF AMIENS, AND IN PARTICULAR TO ITS CULTURAL SERVICE AND LIBRARY. THANKS TO ANNE-SOPHIE, JUSTIN AND JENNIFER.
THE CONVENTION WILL TAKE PLACE AS PLANNED, WITH AN UNCHANGED PROGRAM, BUT IT WILL BE AT THE PÔLE UNIVERSITAIRE CATHEDRAL, IN THE CENTER OF AMIENS, AT THE FOOT OF THE CATHEDRAL, IN THE MIDDLE OF A LIVELY DISTRICT, FILLED WITH RESTAURANTS, CAFES , WITH EXHIBITION HALLS, MEETING ROOMS, AMPHITHEATRES, A CAFETERIA, THEATERS AND CINEMAS ALL AROUND!
AND AS A BONUS, WE WILL STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO VISIT THE SITE CITADEL, TO ADMIRE THE ARCHITECTURAL CREATION OF THE CABINET RENZO PIANO.
FINALLY, HERE IS A SETBACK THAT RESULTS IN EVEN MORE FACILITIES AND ANIMATIONS ...
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.
BOOKING A LOWCOST ROOM IN A RESIDENCE IS NOW AVALAIBLE !
Welcome to Janine (#228) and Sandy (#229) from UK
AN EUROCON IN FRANCE
WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?
First : Don't worry : the most of round tables, lessons or interviews (and animations) will be in english (or at least translated)
Third : Discover richness of African Science-fiction, meet writers, journalists, searchers and learn to know this marvellous old and new world of original Science fiction
Four : Meet writers from all the world, have a drink, a meal, a discussion with them. Enforce your love for scifi from all their differences !
Five : Come in Amiens, so close to everywhere in Europa and enjoy the most beautiful mystic cathedral in the world, discover the secrets of its famous cultivated swamps, taste the special flavours of picxardy cooking !
- Accommodation and meals : - Student Rooms are really rooms, for one person, with everything you can find in an hotel. They are not dormitories, and you have not to share a room with other persons, and doors get a key !
- Who will I meet ? You can find here a list of subscribers, writers who will be present, and African staff, too
- How to subscribe ? Just see here. And you can also reserve a student room or pay for your meals (french cooking !)
- What's the program ? The program is still on work, but you have a first approach, with highlights of Scifi Theatre, Jules Verne's house, discovering Amiens, aso
