SMOFs are the Secret Masters Of Fandom, the people who tend to run the science fiction cons listed on this site. SMOFcon is an annual convention focused on doing so, especially Worldcons. After the zeroth SMOFcon in New York in the early seventies, it was first held in 1984 in Washington, DC. Arizona has held it once, in 1988.
