Our site, Lanyrd, is a crowdsourced directory of conferences and professional events. We’re extremely strong in areas such as Mobile, Web Design and User Experience, but we also have listings for Publishing and E-Learning. Try these pages:


We also try to keep track of open calls for proposals: Calls for participation—but our data is only as good as the information that has been added by our community. We’ll be working to make our calls for papers functionality more visible (and hence more populated) in the future.

If you sign in to the site with Twitter we’ll show you events that the people you follow are attending or speaking at, which could work well as an alternative to just browsing our listings by topic.
