The Summit is being held in Seattle, WA, Nov 18-21, 2008. Call for speakers is open through March 28. It's a great venue for SQL Server professionals and if you've been practicing at local events, maybe now is the time to try to move up to a national audience! The competition to get on the schedule is tough, but they try to bring in as many different speakers as they can. Doesn't hurt to submit a session and see what happens.
