Ruminating an idea: Interest in a conference on Interaction Design Education

For the last bit I have been thinking about creating a separate conference that focuses on interaction design education. By no means is this an academic/research conference, but rather a summit, working group, that is interested in tackling the life-long issues of an interaction designer's career. I moved from industry to education because I saw deep issues in the career development of interaction designers, especially at the early stages of formal educaiton and have grown to hear a must wider perspective on the topic.
So to be clear this event is not something for educators alone. It is for anyone interested in or a stakeholder of education at all levels and in all contexts of the lifetime of the interaction design practitioner.
So that being said, who amongst you would be interested in the following:
attending such an event
helping craft a format
helping me write up a prospectus on how to fund, operate, and curate such an event.
