Science Fiction Convention with Anime, Gaming, and Video Gaming programming

Genericon is a weekend-long, general convention run by the students of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. We feature a wide variety of attractions that run the gamut of geeky hobbies, including science fiction, gaming of all forms, and anime. Our events include panels by guest speakers, video gaming tournaments, role-playing games of both the pen-and-paper and live-action variety, and 48 hours of showings of both science fiction classics and modern anime fresh from Japan. The convention runs for an uninterrupted 48 hours, starting at 5 PM on Friday and ending at 5 PM the following Sunday. Non-pregestration and non-group tickets will be sold on-site during the convention.
