Resa Nelson Biography & Facts
Vericon is an annual science fiction convention at Harvard University, organized by the Harvard-Radcliffe Science Fiction Association. Lasting over a three-day weekend, for the first nine years of its existence it took place on the last weekend of January; for 2010, however, it was moved to mid-March to accommodate changes in Harvard College's academic calendar. It has been described as the largest college-based science fiction convention in the United States.Vericon was held most recently in 2016, and is currently on hiatus.
The convention features anime, boardgames, cosplay, Human Chess, dances, LARPs, and RPGs.
