Worldcon, or more formally The World Science Fiction Convention, is the longest running science fiction convention, having been held from 1939 to 1941 and, after the interruption of World War II, every year since 1946. The name Worldcon is owned by the World Science Fiction Society (WSFS), whose membership are the paying attendees of the convention. The conventions themselves are run by non-profit, science fiction fan organizations, who bid to host the event.

Most Worldcons are held in North America, although they have taken place in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and the Netherlands. The 2005 Worldcon was held in Glasgow, the 2006 Worldcon will be held in Los Angeles, California, and the 2007 Worldcon will be the first to be held in Japan.
