Researchers publish articles. Articles are being presented and discussed at scientific conferences and are the capital of researchers for their future life. Conferences happen in various towns and locations.
However, from a travel perspective, there is a clear distinction of which of the two conferences is preferable.
Just how do you get a hold of the conference invitations, calls for papers and workshop outlines early enough to submit your paper?
In the good old 1990ies, you had to subscribe to several dozen e-mail lists, manage browser bookmarks, and collect paper flyers on conferences. And you’d still miss the one cool conference on the cruise ship.
Finding the right location
In 2010, there is a web-based tool called Eventseer.net. Basically a database that archives Calls for Papers and conference invitations, this service allows you to browse and search for topical keywords, locations, or people you’d like to meet on conferences. It is suitable for various kinds of searches:
- Is there a conference on Hawaii that covers information systems research?
- Where can I meet Prof. Smith as a member of the organizing committee?
- What conferences are coming up in Berlin?
After you’ve found your location, use ABC4Trip to find the essential details!
