Discussion on: Where do you find conference CFPs?

My absolute best option for this kind of thing has to be papercall.io. I found this site through an event that was running their CFP with it and later on I started seeing several others that were going along the same path. Needless to say, I just made an account there and have been using it ever since.

I’m aware of papercall but think it’s kind of a mess. Searching and filtering is pretty blunt, they make it very difficult to tell whether or not conferences comp travel expenses for speakers, and a lot of the CFPs on that site are for ongoing local meet ups rather than conferences.

Papercall is certainly better than nothing, but it’s honestly not as good as some of the resources that existed a couple years ago, so I guess I’m spoiled.

Well, I guess I don't have that many opinions about the site itself because I normally find the CFPs in other sites and then get directed to the papercall site haha. I think I never used the site directly. Sorry I can't be of much help here
