Fix Congress First is hosting a Conference on the Constitutional Convention September 24 and 25, 2011, at Harvard University. The Conference is co-chaired by Lawrence Lessig and Mark McKinnon; Lessig and McKinnon make their case for an Article V convention, and frame some of the issues for the Conference, here.
According to the Conference web-site:
On September 24th, people from across America and across the political spectrum will convene at Harvard University to discuss the advisability and feasibility of organizing towards a Constitutional Convention. While the conference's lead organizers are proponents of a convention--and are particularly passionate about the need to reduce the influence of private money in politics--we actively encourage the participation of those who support a convention for other reasons, and those who oppose holding a convention at all.
