The database consists of detailed information and deadlines about calls for papers for forthcoming conferences and special issues of scholarly journals. These calls for papers are issued by professional bodies, journal editors and other conference organizers in all disciplines and from all over the world. Thus, the database serves as an alerting service for researchers, scholars and students that are seeking opportunities to present and publish their research.
Approximately 10,000 conferences are listed each year along with 1,200-1,500 special issues. These are fully searchable by name, acronym, organizer, location, publisher, topic and other fields. Important dates such as Last Day for Submission of Abstracts or Manuscripts are clearly labeled and are provided well in advance of the event or proposed publication date. A personal alert can be set-up based on any number of keywords and parameters that generates an email notification of newly-announced conferences and publications of interest; new content is added three times per month.
All calls for
papers have been classified by
specific disciplines within the following broad areas of specialization:
architecture, music, and sports
and genetic engineering
and information technology
library science, and journalism
biology, medicine, and health sciences
and related areas
sciences and astronomy
religion and mythology
and other related fields
Dates of Coverage
Current. Scheduled conferences are only listed once the call for papers has been issued; this may occur several years in advance of the event itself. Events that have happened are removed from the database daily.
Three times per month, with at least 200 new records added.
Over 5,660 records as of May 2013. These represent events that are scheduled to happen; past events are removed from the database.

L3: Last Day for Submission of Abs
June 1, 2007
IK: Important Dates
Notification of Acceptance of Abstracts: July 31, 2007
'Science, Technology and Practice'
The main objective of the conference is to create a forum for exchange of ideas
and experience between researchers...
In order to widen the contribution of all participants, the conference format
will comprise parallel sessions...
* Wave mechanics applied to pile engineering
* Relationship between static resistance to driving and long-term static soil
* Case histories involving measurement and analysis of stress waves
* Dynamic monitoring of driven piles
* Dynamic soil-pile intereaction models. Numerical and physical modelling
* High-strain dynamic test
* Low-strain dynamic test
* Rapid-load test
* Monitoring and analysis of vibratory driven piles
* Correletion of dynamic and static load tests
* Quality assurance of deep foundetions using dynamic methods
* Incorporation of dynamic testing into design codes and testing standards
* Ground vibrations induced by pile motions
SB: Submission Information
Engineers, researchers, teachers and other professionals are invited to submit
abstracts for review, dealing with one or more subjects of the Conference
related to pile engineering....
Abstracts should be submitted online through official website.

The conference will also include invited keynote lecturers and presentation and
discussion of selected papers in plenary sessions.
Best Student Paper Competition:
To encourage young researchers interest in pile dynamics issues, the organizing
committee invites students (undergraduate or postgraduate under 30 years old) to
join the paper competition. The winner of the competition will receive a cash
