The 2007 ACM International Symposium on Advances in GIS will be in Seattle from November 7th to the 9th. As they describe themselves:

The ACM International Symposium on Advances in Geographic Information Systems in 2007 (ACM GIS 2007) is the fifteenth event of a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners carrying out research and development in novel systems based on geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems. The symposium provides a forum for original research contributions covering all conceptual, design, and implementation aspects of GIS and ranging from applications, user interface considerations, and visualization down to storage management and indexing issues. This year, a novelty is that ACM GIS has separated from its long-time host conference in order to become independent and more visible to the GIS community, further expand the spectrum of research topics covered by the symposium, and grow over the next years.

If this looks like something you would like to be a part of the deadline for submitting papers has been extended. The program from last year looks very academic. I wonder if reaching out through blogs (like this one) if they'll get some more real world talks. The topics (after the jump) are wide-ranging and quite fascinating (no wonder both Microsoft and Google are sponsoring). I'll be looking at the proceedings to get ideas and speakers for Where 2.0 2008.
