Trinoc*coN was an annual science fiction convention which was held in North Carolina.[1] It started in 2000. Guests of honor included George R.R. Martin. 2006 was the first year that the convention was held outside of Durham; it was held in the Northern Raleigh Hilton in Raleigh, North Carolina. The name "Trinoc*coN" is a reference to the Trinocs, a fictional alien race from the works of Larry Niven. It ceased operation in 2009.
