Suggestions for Mobile design conference?

Does anyone have good suggestions on conferences focused on design for mobile applications or devices?  It could also be a conference with a mobile track or concentration.  I'm looking for the UX professional perspective, not development. Thanks for any suggestions!

I recommend taking a look at http://thoughtpile.org/ , Herman Miller's web site, for a visually remarkable interface. It's a crowd-sourcing/idea generation type of site.

Dashboard for non-trending data?

I've been tasked with designing an interface for an application that reports on SQL and Sharepoint data. I'd like the default home page of the application to present some sort of summary information, and I thought a dashboard would not only jazz things up a bit (I've also been asked to try to make reporting 'sexy' - not an easy feat!), but also provide an entry point for newer users.

However, dashboards tend to lend themselves to trend-type data, or reports that generate simple numerical results such as 'number of databases: 24'.
