Best conferences? (CHI, UPA, DUX, etc.)

I'm interested in suggestions for the best
conferences related to our interests.

I can justify up to two conferences per year (possibly
only one), and I want to make the most worthwhile choice.

So, first, are any of the conferences worthwhile? And if so,
if you could only go to one, which one would it be? And if
you could go to two, which two would you choose?

(I've been looking at DUX, CHI, and UPA primarily).

Why do you attend (or not attend) CHI?

The fact that we have close to 20 people interested in dinner on Monday
brought up an interesting question for me. As a one of the few
practitioners (as opposed to corporate research or academia) on the CHI
conference committee for two different years now, one of the things that
is always a struggle is the balancing of needs across several groups.
There have long been complaints that CHI is "too academic" etc. So, my
question is, what things, to you as an interaction designer, does CHI do
well or not well? Why do you come to the conference or why do you avoid

Hot off the presses: DUX has dates (according to AIGA)

I got the following as part of the AIGA Communique ...

DUX (Designing for User Experience), November 3­5
In collaboration with the ACM¹s SIGCHI and SIGGRAPH, the AIGA Experience
Design community will offer a conference in San Francisco on Designing for
User Experience in which design practitioners from multiple disciplines and
domain share case studies of their work which help illuminate the question,
What is good experience design and what factors contribute to the creation
of a success or failure?

I know a few people were waiting for some sort of official announcement
