The big winner this year is Europe. This is partly a coincidence, and partly due to the general internationalization of science over the last few years. With cuts to basic science in the US and increased hassle for visitors, conferences outside the US become more attractive. Europe and Australia/New Zealand are the immediate winners because they have the science, infrastructure, and english in place. China and India are possible future winners.
