Science Fiction Convention
Shore Leave is a fan-run, science ficiton media convention.
Breaking that down a bit, "fan-run" means the entire convention is put on by Volunteers. Everyone from the person who hands you your badge to the committee co-chairs.
"Science fiction media" means Shore Leave is primarily focused on science fiction movies and television, as opposed to a literary convention (e.g. Balticon) which focuses on books. (Which is not to say that we don't have authors as guests - we do! Plus space scientists, performers and artists.)
