USENIX Vail Computer Elements Workshop: For 42 years, this 4-day workshop has served leading architects of the computer industry. The agenda is 100% invited technical talks and the audience is mostly previous speakers. Past keynotes have been Seymour Cray, Gordon Moore, Burton Smith, etc. This year the keynote is by Ivan Sutherland on "Escaping the Tyranny of the Clock". This is an exciting year because this marks the change of sponsorship from IEEE to USENIX.
