There's a conference coming to Seattle that looks really interesting for language wonks:

The .NET Programming Languages And Compilers Symposium: Lang .NET 2006

Here are a few of the things that they'll be discussing:

  • Dynamic languages and scripting
  • AJAX and ATLAS
  • Domain specific languages
  • Functional languages
  • Object-oriented and aspect-oriented programming
  • Web-services and mobile code
  • Libraries
  • Language-Integrated Query (LINQ)
  • Compiler frameworks
  • Garbage collection
  • JIT compilation
  • Visual Programming
  • Success and failure stories
  • Non-standard language features and implementation techniques
  • Tools and IDE support

Great folks on the committee. Guess I know what I'll be doing in early August!
