Bubonicon is an annual multigenre convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico, typically held during the last weekend of August. It is the largest general-interest science fiction convention in New Mexico and among the oldest in the Southwest.
In 1976 one of Bubonicon's longest running traditions, the Green Slime Awards, were started in order to honor the worst in Science Fiction from the previous year.
The 2018 convention theme is "The Golden Age of Science Fiction." Co-Guests of Honor are authors John Scalzi and Mary Robinette Kowal. The 2018 Guest Artist is Eric Velhagen.
