Boskone 4 was a convention held April 1-2, 1967 at the Statler-Hilton, Boston in Boston, MA. The GoHs were Damon Knight and Marvin Minsky. It was chaired by Paul Galvin and attendance was 72. Boskone 4 was sponsored by BoSFS as part of its bidding strategy for Boston in '67.

This was part of the modern series of Boskones. The first series (held during WW II) had been forgotten by the time the modern Boskone started, so the modern series again started at 1. To distinguish, first series Boskones use Roman numerals, and modern Boskones use Arabic numerals. (Boskone IV was held in 1945.)

In his GoH speech, Knight proposed Project Boskone.
