Here is list I made for 2012 and 2013:

In order by date. The list may seem (or actually be) somewhat random, but the overarching desire is to include conventions that people who are located in Western MA and interested in sci-fi (especially Doctor Who) would be most interested in attending. Conventions may be included because they are closeby, or large, or particularly focused on our theme. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list (instead people can use sites like those listed under the resources heading, at the bottom of this page).
