I see they use "International" in that peculiar American way, much like "World" in World Series.

I mean that despite it's stated international focus/dimension, it appears to be largely domestic.  I'm not criticising that btw, just the US penchant for claiming global significance for all things.

@j_menz: I see your point, but you have to remember that it's in the US, so based on geography much more US residents are likely to attend. If it were in China or Russia, then the majority of the participants would probably be from asia and europe, respectively. People from different countries do come, so I think "international" is fair despite the majority of attendees being from the US.
