Held on August 3-7, 2011 in Mountain View (Silicon Valley), California.
The AGI-11 Conference was held just after the IJCNN-11 conference and just before the AAAI-11 conference, which are each also taking place in the Bay Area. The organization of AGI-11 this time directly involves the contributions of two members of the core ASIM group (Bruce Klein and Randal A. Koene).

From the description at http://agi-conf.org/2011/home/ :
Continuing the mission of the first three AGI conferences (most recently AGI-10 that was held at the University of Lugano, Switzerland), in August 2011, AGI-11 will gather an international group of leading academic and industry researchers involved in serious scientific and engineering work aimed directly toward the goal of artificial general intelligence.
This is the only major conference series devoted wholly and specifically to the creation of AI systems possessing general intelligence at the human level and ultimately beyond. By gathering together active researchers in the field, for presentation of results and discussion of ideas, we accelerate our progress toward our common goal. AGI-11 will be hosted by Google in Mountain View, California.
We hope that our direct involvement in the planning of AGI-11 can result in an interesting brain/neuroscience related slant to some of the discussion at AGI-11. It is important to note that, in essence, ASIM is a subset of AGI, in which we choose not de-novo constructed kernels, but replicated kernels of specific human minds as the initialization of continually upgrading and developing intelligence.
It will be particularly interesting to see how new insights pioneered by resident expert Suzanne Gildert and recently presented at the Caltech Humanity+ meeting may affect the directions of some projects to be presented at AGI-11. Those insights addressed the feasibility of superintelligent AGI and the possibility that human intelligence may exist at the edge of a stable "catchment area".
A historical note of interest is the strong relationship between the AGI conferences and the ASIM community. Randal A. Koene has been involved with the AGI conferences since the first conference in Memphis in 2008. Furthermore, the carboncopies organization itself is the result of the collaborative founding efforts of Suzanne Gildert and Randal A. Koene, initiated by first meeting at the AGI-10 conference in Lugano, Switzerland. If history is any guide, therefore, we can expect exciting developments in preparation for and consequence of AGI-11 in Silicon Valley!
We hope to see you all there!
