ICON Science Fiction Inc.

(Did you mean conventions in Iowa, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Canada)

Taking over from the Science Fiction Forum, for more than thirty years, ICON Science Fiction, Inc. has been fostering education and exploration in science and technology by harnessing America's fascination with SF and fantasy.

Each year ICON has hosted a three-day festival designed to encourage literacy, creativity and interest in science and technology through science fiction and its related genres called I-CON, short for "Island Convention."

ICON gives awards in several categories.

In 2014, ICON Science Fiction, Inc. held a new convention called LI-CON.
