European Science Fiction Society General Meeting

Salle 0.1
World-building as a vehicle for social science: Can SF move beyond character-driven fiction?
I’m co-editor of Sci Phi Journal, with a background in political philosophy and alternate history, while in the “real world” I work in EU foreign affairs. To explore these intersections, I would suggest: “World-building as a vehicle for social science: Can SF move beyond character-driven
fiction?”
Open to all and any fellow panellists and their perspectives from across the broad EuroCon spectrum. It might be particularly interesting to hear from authors/publishers/creators involved in “serious” or “hard” SF which often places more emphasis on accurate world-building, socioeconomic
modelling, scenario-building, or playing out the consequences of fictional philosophical or theological
concepts.
Gerencsér Ádám, Mariano Martin Rodríguez

Salle 0.2
How to build and sustain a local NaNoWriMo community
NaNoWriMo is a world-wide initiative/community of prospective
writers committing to create a written work of
fiction for the duration of every November. There are rules and perks. In this talk we will discuss how does one set up a local community, how to build trust and sustainability, how to communicate with the franchise and how to start in your own country.
Ivo Alekseev

Salle 0.1
Littérature Fantastique pour Personnes en Détresse
Fantasy peut redonner le sourire aux personnes en détresse. Mélodie Ducoeur nous explique comment
aborder des thèmes comme la perte d‘un enfant tout en créant un univers doux, humoristique et optimiste. Un 2e volet se consacrera à la sensibilisation pour aider les jeunes qui ont des idées suicidaires.
Mélodie Ducoeur

Salle 0.2
Workshop on creative writing in the vein of NaNoWriMo
This small-scale sprint based workshop will feature moderators, who are both active authors and translators and who will share experience and tips on short fiction. We will run a sprint consisting of a timed writing with a prompt, followed by discussion on how it went. The focus on the sprints is on the act of writing collectively and sharing the experience and hardship, not so much on the quality of the writing itself. It’s also possible to do a series of sprints throughout the con.
Ivo Alekseev, Elena Pavlova, Georgi Yanakiev

13:00

Grand Auditoire
The Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund (TAFF) and other fan-fund traditions: what have we done, how can we do it better?
TAFF and other fan-funds have played a key role in allowing fans from all over the world to join conventions they might not otherwise be able to visit, and encounter fellow fans in those places. Some fan-fund beneficiaries are exposing their experiences and sharing tales.

Salle 0.2
Building bridges across the world and to the future: the transformative power of speculative fiction
Speculative fiction is often called the literature of ideas. Good speculative fiction helps us transcend boundaries-interpersonal, spatial, and temporal alike. Great speculative fiction helps us transform what we have into what we dream of. This presentation will focus on several examples of positive transformation from the forthcoming ФантАstika: Almanac of Bulgarian Speculative Fiction. Three of them are fictional; one is real-life.
Kalin Nenov & Drake Vato

14:00

Grand Auditoire
The Future of Free Speech
Free Speech and censorship is a topic in many science fiction stories. Arguably most prominent in Orwell’s “1984”, we also find it in Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers” or Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”. Even in Howard’s “Conan”-stories, we find bards whose tongues are cut out for spreading the unconvenient word. In today’s world, we see speech suppressed by totalitarian regimes. And in the Western world, some argue Internet Mobbing, Political Correctness and Cancel Culture to be a form of censorship not foreseen by any sf writer. Our panelists discuss the state of affairs in fiction and reality, bringing diverse backgrounds from multiple countries.
Robert Corvus, Luc Francois, Arkady Martine and others.

Petit Auditoire

Salle 0.1
All Things Transhumanist
It has been said by smart people that transhumanism is the only real shared project humanity has left. And in many obvious or more subtle ways, there’s a lot of truth to this statement. But what does it make to qualify as transhuman and are we not already there? This talk will discuss the historical background of the transhumanist movement, its modern branches, the main ethical, scientific and political questions and how various SFF works try to answer them.
We will also touch on the concept of posthumanism in its various guises. Obviously, lots of favorite authors, books, movies and shows on the list.
Joro Penchev, Ivo Alekseev, Drake Vato/Viktor Dimitrev

Salle 0.2
Cons in the time of Covid
The pandemic is far from over, and, much like the rest of the world, conventions have experiences a seismic shift because of it. We discuss the lessons learned from the last years, and debate what to take away from the practical changes we have had to make to our lives.

Petit Auditoire
A Little Alien in The Big City
The lands of SFF are vast and spacious and full of English.
As far as markets and culture go, speculative fiction is still an English dominated field. But what’s it like to write speculative fiction in a smaller market? Say, Hebrew…
We will discuss the challenges of writing speculative fiction in a non-English tradition. Like how to break free of old patterns and express our own culture, and how the hell can you differentiate between a witch, a sorcerer, a warlock and an enchanter in Hebrew.
Ehud Maimon, Keren Landsman

Salle 0.1
How Much Science Is In Science Fiction?
Shrinking machines, time travelling, super-magnifying glasses and similar devices are often found in science fiction stories. Let’s discuss how much science really is behind such tools.
Andy Genen, Michela Bernini

Salle 0.2
Handwaffen in SFF
Excalibur, Lichtschwert, Laser, Phaser und der Ring – Wie entwirft man gute Waffen? Warum führen Autor:innen diese in ihre Geschichten ein? Was hat sich in der Darstellung von Waffen im Laufe der letzten Jahrzehnte verändert? Welche Symbolik wird üblicherweise mit den verschiedenen Waffen in Verbindung gebracht?
Robert Corvus, Bernhard Hennen & Ju Honisch

17:00

Grand Auditoire
SFF as a political project
Outline: Wait, don’t run! This is not about contemporary politics, representation and what have you. Although, in a way, it also is. We will discuss the notion of politics and walk through plenty of examples that most (or all?) of SFF’s worldbuilding is in essence an answer to political questions that have been posed times and times again since the dawn of humanity. Is there real escapism in fantasy or is that political too? Is Palpatine’s takeover of the Senate just an age-old retelling of social game theory? Is, maybe, SFF the most shrewd tool humanity has on their hands for shaping the political discourse of the future?
Joro Penchev, Ivo Alekseev Elena Pavlova

Tune Into The Future (/w director Q&A)
A documentary which explores how thinking about tomorrow became a pop-culture phenomenon called Science Fiction. Despite rich and varied origins, there is one
name which can be credited with single-handedly shaping the way we understand science fiction today as a genre. It was Hugo Gernsback who stuck his hand into the soup of early 20th century pulp literature and fished out science fiction – giving it its name and a clear definition, turning it into a genre that anyone could engage with. His goal was to inspire and to stimulate young minds into speculating about how science would shape our future and to come up with tomorrow’s new inventions. In the process, he created science fiction. The fan community growing around the genre turns science fiction into a cultural movement and keeps it in constant evolution, each generation adapting it to current scientific progress, but also to the hopes and fears of its time. Guided by authors, historians, filmmakers, astronomers and rocket scientists, Tune Into The Future weaves together interviews, animation and pop-culture references to take the viewer on a fascinating and entertaining journey to witness this evolution. But also to discover that the way we tell stories about tomorrow really reveals more about ourselves today than about the future.

Is speculative fiction a literary art form
Speculative fiction as a form of literary art is challenged. Its artistic status and its long-term survival are threatened by both a general deficit of rhetorical skills and a wide desire to advance ideological agendas, thus turning literature into propaganda. Potential solutions.

Glasgow in 2024 book club (hybrid)
At Luxcon, the 2022 Eurocon between 7th and 10th April, the Glasgow in 2024 book club will be reading The Library of the Dead by T. L. Huchu. The book club meeting will be a hybrid event for members of Luxcon.
Ropa dropped out of school to become a ghost-talker. Now she speaks to Edinburgh’s dead, carrying messages to the living. A girl’s gotta earn a living, and it seems harmless enough. Until, that is, the dead whisper that someone’s bewitching children–leaving them husks, empty of joy and life. It’s on Ropa’s patch, so she feels honor-bound to investigate. But what she learns will change her world.
T. L. Huchu is a Zimbabwean author who has lived most of his adult life in Edinburgh. The Library of the Dead is his first genre novel, and the opening book in his Edinburgh Nights series.

Zombies, Parasiten und Pandemien –
Eine kurze Geschichte der (weniger bekannten) filmischen Virenausbrüche Pandemie-Filme nehmen im Katastrophen- und Horrorfilmgenre eine Sonderstellung ein: Sie spielen das Bedrohungsszenario einer sich flächendeckend ausbreitenden, tödlichen Infektionskrankheit variantenreich durch und nehmen dadurch geschickt Bezug auf menschliche Urängste vor der unsichtbaren, immateriellen und kaum zu kontrollierenden Ausbreitung von Viren, die mühelos die gesamte Menschheit an den Rand der Existenz bringen können. Nicht selten bringt das Virus in diesen “Outbreak-Erzählungen” das Schlechteste im Menschen hervor: Sie werden durch die Infektion irreversibel verändert und mutieren, nicht selten binnen Sekunden, in hochaggressive Zombies, die das Ende der Zivilisation herbeiführen.
Von David Cronenberg (Shivers, 1975) über George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead, 1978) bis Sang-Ho Yeon (Train to Busan, 2016) wirft der Vortrag, untermalt von zahlreichen Filmausschnitten, einen Blick auf die Geschichte der mehr und weniger bekannten Zombieviren auf der großen Leinwand.

AI Films made in Luxembourg
The future is here. Some of us recognise it and others deny it. A.I. is a revolution. It is the use our intelligence to make our lives better and to sustain us through the darkness. Once big data is analysed, solutions will emerge from that fog. My stories are about a dying mother, a worker in an office and an orphan. Will A.I. “feel”? Will it have emotions? The answer is yes. We can teach them kindness, care and affection to mirror the best of us. However, my warning is this… humanities dark side will always exist. A.I., given the right protocol will be as revolutionary to the world as fire in bringing light and warmth to the world. In the wrong hands, it will burn it down.
These films were made with love and dedication from the actors and tech people. We invite you to view them and celebrate their hard work.

The last 50 years have seen not only the modification of what we understand today like „fantastika” (the overgenre comprising sf, fantasy, horror and anything in between and connected), but important changes in extraliterary factors which influnce the writing, the editing and the publishing of fantastika. The presentation has a historical overview on the political, ideological, social and psychological factors which bore weight over the literary final product of fantastika, with examples taken mainly from recent Romanian literary history.

The science of dragons and monsters
When Cthulhu rises from abysmal depths, when a piece of amber sparks a prehistoric adventure park, when Ponyo swims among ancient creatures, the science of fossils is closer than you think. Palaeontological research has always been a fertile source of inspiration for all kinds of fiction. But how realistic is a giant, flying dragon? Could Nessie be real? And what if planet Earth is, in fact, home to creatures that challenge even the wildest imagination, hiding in plain sight? Join Dr. Ben Thuy to celebrate the fantastic cross-pollination between the science and creativity.
