Conferences I would attend if I were a professional conference attendee

I love attending conferences and conventions so much that I occasionally wish I could do that as my full-time job. I decided to amuse myself by making a list of the conferences and conventions I would attend (or would have attended) in 2015 if I were a professional conference-goer. This list assumes that I would have an unlimited travel budget and no other job-related responsibilities. An asterisk before or after the date indicates that I would have to either arrive after the conference or convention began, or leave before it ended.
