Hello Future Con-Goers!

Thank you for your patience over the summer, and we apologize for any inconvenience our (read: my) lack of updates may have caused.

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 twenty-four hour showings of both science fiction classics and modern anime fresh from Japan. The convention runs for an uninterrupted 48 hours, starting at 6 PM on Friday and ending at 6 PM the following Sunday.
