Unicon (UK)

Did you want a Unicon outside the UK?

A series of university-based conventions in the UK and normally held during the summer. It was launched as a one-time event at Keele University in Staffordshire, England named Unicon 80 and held two more at the same location. Unicon was then opened up to outside groups and became the name of the series, but not necessarily of the convention.
