The listing has been created from external sources over which EMC has no control.

It isn't comprehensive. There is a supplementary listing of CFPs etc from some sites not included in EMC. (This is in a separate page because it can be slow to load.)

The search filter is based on simple keywords ('call for papers', 'CFP', etc), so non-relevant information may sometimes be included, while relevant posts might occasionally be missed.

The Conferences aggregator has its own RSS feed so you don't need to keep coming back to this page to get updates: RSS feed for Conferences.
