Most of the website for Eurocon 2011

The website for Eurocon 2011 has been transferred to this site. It is now only in English but material from the Swedish pages has been added. Some links may not work any longer, and som less relevant comments have not been transferred.

Watch Eurocon on Swedish television

You can watch five programme items on Swedish television until July 1, 2016.

Souvenir Book & The Wisent

The convention souvenir book was given to all participants. If you’ve lost yours, or wasn’t there, you can download this fantastic book, created by Anna Davour and Johan Anglemark, in pdf format.

Eurocon 2011 is over

Unfortunately, the convention is already over. But to help you overcome your PCS we will update these pages with official visitor figures and a lot of other information – as soon as the webmaster has had a week or two of sleep.

Thank You!

Many thanks to the convention committee, the Guests of Honour, guests and conrunners, gophers, et c, for making this a wonderful con. Thanks also to the THS Student Association for housing the con.

A very special thanks to Meike from Germany, Lise from Denmark, and Charlie from Sweden, for a very good discussion about the Hugo-nominated short stories.


Dr Cagliostro´s cabinet of curiosities

Coming to Eurocon 2011 – unique exhibition comprising extraordinary objects and amazing stories based on encounters with the unknown.

Read more here: Cagliostro.


The programme is now more or less final. As always subject to last minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances, though. Keep an eye on the convention notice board or here on the web.

Note that the programme is in Google Calendar, dead easy to add items to your personal Google Cal if you have one!


Now you can follow us on Twitter: @eurocon2011



SFJournalen Eurocon tweets too

SFJournalen (my newszine) also tweets from Eurocon. Not too much before the con, but during the events I hope to bring you all kinds of little newspieces of things going on, straight from the floor. I have earlier sometimes made “special convention issues” – too much work! So Twitter replaces that.
Follow @SFJournalen – and it will be in English.
