18th Annual Mars Society Convention...

Does anyone know when and where it is? I need to know very soon, because I'm coming over to America next summer and need to book my flight. I've emailed The Mars Society, but no response has been forthcoming.

I asked someone whom I thought might know but didn't.  You might be able to Facebook message Dr. Zubrin himself, but otherwise there's no way of knowing.

Re: 18th Annual Mars Society Convention...

Where a convention is held is decided by the steering committee. They meet in person at the convention, and receive proposals to host a convention. But the decision is made via conference call. At least that's what I learned when I made such an offer several years ago; I can only assume it's the same now. Last year the location was announced in an MDRS report, January 7. Then a call for papers for the convention on January 11. Can you wait until after New Year?
