Is there an easy way to find out about current calls for papers and conferences? I find it incredibly frustrating every time I find an interesting conference announcement and see that the call for papers deadline expired the day before, or is too soon to prepare a paper for submission. Is there a global collection of bioinformatics related conferences somewhere?

Yes, you can find conference calendar on sciencedz.net (http://sciencedz.net/) here:

on sciencedz.net (http://sciencedz.net) you can also post CFPs and conferences for listing and it is free ;-)

I found this one few days ago : http://www.wikicfp.com/ I found it ok, also you have to check 2 categories : bioinformatics and computational biology

I chose this as an answer, because it looks most promising (I already added some of the CFPs I knew about, incredibly easy...)

Just heard of ResearchRaven : A Place to Announce Upcoming Meetings and Calls for Papers.

At the risk of sounding slightly daft - no, not that I know of.

I personally get my information about upcoming conferences from the mailing lists I subscribe to where every upcoming barely relevant call for papers is spammed liberally across half a dozen of them at a time, ensuring that there is no way for me to not know about their existence!

http://www.bioinformatics.org/ however do seem to have lots of CfP's on their news front page.

There is no centralized place to this end. But, there are a few very important hubs, though. These are very important:

Genetics Society Meetings ISCB Meetings

IEEE has some interesting meetings too.

To avoid deadline frustation, I recommend you to follow this societies closely (use their RSS, Twitter or mail lists). Many conferences just spike out suddenly and have very short time windows (at least in South America). And always be prepared. Keep your preprints in good shape. Life will be much easier and a lot more funnier.

I can't find any useful RSS, do you have any at hand?

ADD REPLYlink written 9.6 years ago by Brandstaetter270

I already listen to Twitter and I found some CfP there, but the deadlines were always horribly close...

ADD REPLYlink written 9.6 years ago by Brandstaetter270

My strategy is to have as many feeds from societes and labs as possible. And search and anotate them on a regular basis. There is no centralized RSS, even for ISCB. You can find the top meeting on Genome Technology, they have good feeds.

Hi, all. I am one of the people who works on ResearchRaven. We have just launched. But we are certainly going to try to be a helpful resource in the biomedical field when it comes to serving as a centralized location for calls for papers and lists of meetings. Please feel free to submit such announcements for possible listing on ResearchRaven. No catch. It is all free. The aim is to free scientists from the hassle of having to search for hours for such info.

And the comments above certainly do suggest there is a need for ResearchRaven and the other sites mentioned. Here is a bit about ResearchRaven that I wrote for librarians:

Say, Egon. You are certainly well regarded by your peers in Open Science. I heard your name mentioned a lot at the Science Commons Symposium Pacific Northwest in February 2010.

According to the webpage, mostly the organizers are supposed to submit calls for papers. Maybe you could think about redesigning that?
