I was at Skepticon II a couple years ago, got to hang out with some really cool people like Robert M. Price, P.Z. Myers, Richard Carrier, and Rebecca Watson.  Their website  The speakers' list for this year!  I plan to go this year.  Is anyone else here going?

Don't know for sure.  You'd probably have to check with the organizers.  I know that one of the main people behind it is JT Eberhard.  You could ask him (although I don't know whether he'd have time to respond).

My guess would be that it won't be for a while.  Skepticon is one of the younger conventions in the atheist/skepticism movement and will probably need to make a "name" for itself in the states before it can consider becoming an international event.
