Each year the School of Design gives us some money to attend a conference of our choice. Unless I missed something, we were never provided with a list of conferences thought to be worthwhile, which I believe would be helpful since many of us come from different fields and are not familiar with design conferences.

Last year I went to SXSW, which was a lot of fun and good for networking. That was mostly geared toward web, so I’m wondering if I should find something more universal.

What do you think? Where should I go? And why?
