Worldcon is the annual convention of the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), taking place in late summer. The Hugo Award is an annual literary award for the best science fiction or fantasy works and achievements of the previous year and is presented during WorldCon.
The Bradbury Center participates in WorldCon with a table, panel discussions, and as a host to the Heinlein Society Chili Social.
