Yeah XenSummit 2011 NA is in Santa Clara, CA, USA: 
I think usually XenSummit has been either in North America or in Asia.

Ok. I'm curious to track down why you get such a slow performance..
Your hardware seems decent. It could be some offloading setting 
in dom0 causing trouble.. (buggy nic driver perhaps?)

If you're willing to investigate more, let me/us know :)
