Established by a group of committed individuals representing local interests in Sci-Fi, Anime, and Gaming fandom, CYPHACON debuted at the Lake Charles Civic Center in April 2011. The conference, which combines science fiction, fantasy, anime, and gaming genres, continues to draw a lot of interest from people in and around Southwest Louisiana.
