Åcon began in part as a relaxacon for Finnish SMOFdom—a respite from the anime hordes that overwhelmed Finncon—and has slowly developed into a fine little literary convention for Finns and Swedes. Because of the bilingual nature of the membership, all programming is in the language that they have in common: English.
Past guests of honour have included Hal Duncan, Ian McDonald, Steph Swainston, Geoff Ryman, Cat Valente, and Tricia Sullivan.
