Conference Alerts – Academic Conferences Worldwide brings together two groups of people – conference organizers, and academics who need to stay informed about conferences. They work with both small first-time conference organizers and established professional societies to ensure that notification of their conferences reach specifically interested parties. Both individual academics and a wide range of ‘knowledge brokers’ – such as journal editors, web site administrators and discussion list moderators – rely on our searchable online database and on Conference Alerts Monthly to remain informed about upcoming academic and professional events. They are based in South Africa, but operate as a global organization maintaining an extensive, constantly updated database of conferences and subscribers all over the world. Their internet-based automated process enable them to provide this service at no cost to subscribers and at no cost (for a basic listing) or at a nominal fee (for the Featured Event service) to conference organizers. This has been added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Academic Resources 2004-05 Internet MiniGuide.
