I think ISMB is the best choice, given that the BOSC crowd there are:
1) Motivated to hear about open-source projects &
2) A captive audience :)
RECOMB & PSB are smaller, and do not have a "critical mass" of people
interested in joining in on open-source projects per-se.
I don't know about the crowd IEEE or Bio-IT meetings.
