EAST, or EAST-CON, is a convention in Nebra, Germany. It first occurred the weekend of September 8-11, 2011. With the permanent closure of Tropicon due to changing land use rules for the nature preserve where that event occurred, consensus to collect several other events in East Germany together into a singular convention was gathered. The name of the convention is an acronym for "Episches Abfeiern Streunender Tiere" which translates into English language as "Epic Convention of Stray Animals".
 Programming and accommodations
The convention uses two large common rooms and a main hall in a hotel. Up to 105 guests can be housed at the primary site, but a nearby youth hostel is available as an overflow. Events include a dance, karaoke, Iron Artist, and game show panel.
EAST 2 is scheduled for September 27-30, 2012, and will take place in Falkenstein in the Harz Mountains.
