Well, they call it a ‘post-election conference’. Not quite as catchy. From their site:

The Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics and The USC College of Letters, Arts & Sciences, in association with POLITICO, will host a two-day post-election conference featuring top strategists from the Obama and McCain Presidential campaigns, national and state political journalists, and USC student panelists discussing the 2008 Presidential campaign and what it means for the future.

Journalists Jonathan Martin, Mike Allen, Mark Barabak, Mark Halperin, John Heilermann, Ben Smith and Jim VandeHei among others will be there. A full schedule is here.
