I'm looking for a good conference on Software Architecture to attend in 2011. Ideally it would be a conference focused on the architect role in general, and not specifically about any particular technology. I'm also probably limited to the US and maybe Canada. Any recommendations?

Based on the responses so far, it seems like US is the not the place to find any knowledge on the architecture profession. Why is this the case? –  RationalGeek Mar 18 '11 at 14:07

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

One of the best I know is in London http://www.software-architect.co.uk/

You might want to keep an eye on IASA events : http://www.iasaglobal.org/iasa/Iasa_Events.asp?SnID=1226535095

Hope this helps a bit.

Something lke this? http://gotocon.com/aarhus-2011/tracks/ (Formerly known as JAOO.) I don't know the equivalent in North America, but perhaps you could stalk some of the speakers a little to see where else they speak.
