Nick, while I'm still gathering possible conflict information, so far August 6-8 is looking promising. That misses both the Crypto and WFS conferences, while being early enough in August to not be a problem for students starting classes for the Fall.

Does anyone know of any conficts with August 6-8?

I'm already getting excited about EXTRO 4! Maybe this time we can break a record and get 200 transhumanists together, with a more international collection than ever.
