This year’s US Moot will be held in Sonoma, California (last year it was in Austin, TX) on July 12th through 14th [http://www.moot-us.com/]. Already the 2nd keynote speaker (other than Moodle lead developer and founder, Martin Dougiamas) has been announced as David Wiley. Wiley is a dynamic professor and entrepreneur and has worked to advanced online education in many capacities, including Chief Openness Officer of Flat World Knowledge, a leader in open text books.
According to the site,
Join Moodle’s founder, Martin Dougiamas, and your colleagues in the Sonoma Wine Country for an inspiring and enriching 2-day conference.

In this year’s conference, sessions will highlight the release of Moodle v2.0 and lessons learned from campus transitions to Moodle. Newbies, mavens, and enthusiasts are welcome!
