Bouchercon, named for the late Anthony Boucher, mystery critic for both the NY *Times* and *EQMM*, is also known as the World Mystery Convention and is the oldest, and largest continuing mystery convention. Usually held in the US (alternating between the Eastern Seaboard, the Midwest, and the West Coast), it has traveled abroad in recent years. At least once, it was held in the UK.

I don't know the URL for the 2001 Bouchercon (to be held in Washington, DC) off-hand, nor for the 2002 (to be held in Austin, Texas), but a search engine should turn them up without too much of a problem.
