Digital/Interactive Tech Conferences

Do you know of any awesome digital and interactive art/technology conferences coming up in 2009?

I'm excited about this year's OFFF, and I'd like to go to the HOW Design conference in Austin. But I'd also like to visit a few showcases for interactive technology, as well as video game and emerging technology conferences. Anything even remotely related to interactive, web-related, or digital trends is fair game. Thanks!

Siggraph is the largest computer graphics conference in the world, and although it generally has a focus towards animation, it certainly has sessions about video games and other interactive systems as well as emerging graphics technology. However, it may be too technical for what your needs are.

HASTAC 2009 will be at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and Digital Humanities 2009 will be held at the University of Maryland College Park in June.

Ars and SIGGRAPH are the big ones, and have already been mentioned. ACM Multimedia has an interactive art track. It has more of an academic/research bent to it than Ars Electronica or Siggraph, but I've heard there are sometimes some interesting things happening there. If you're interested in HCI, try ACM CHI, which is also very academic. CHI has a pretty strong presence from design practitioners, however.
