Can anybody please provide me link from where I can subscribe to alerts for international conferences, seminar, workshop etc or postdoc positions ? This could be very useful for me as I generally miss important conferences/seminars/workshops.

    That critically depends on your discipline and research area. Typically, there are mailing lists for almost any discipline. For the UK, you can find a lot of mailing lists here: jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?INDEX&X=&Y=, see, for example the allstat mailing list for statistics – user3825755 Aug 19 '16 at 13:34

There are several sources I get information from:

  1. Mailing list: See if you can find a mailing list specific to your area. Ask your advisor and colleagues about them.

  2. Friends and colleagues in the field.

  3. Word of mouth at other conferences: Ask participants about their favorite conferences & workshops.

  4. Invitation emails of various kinds.

  5. The academic sub-twitterverse

  6. Wiki CFP: http://www.wikicfp.com/cfp/

Note that there are many conference/workshops that are not worth going to. And some of them are right out scams. I've read a number of horror stories about them (e.g. https://scholarlyoa.com/tag/predatory-conferences/). I suggest you choose carefully.

  • WikiCfp is really simple and useful – DavideChicco.it Aug 19 '16 at 15:14

    WikiCfp: Use with caution. The vast majority of listed conferences in my field is on the sketchy side. – lighthouse keeper Oct 25 '17 at 20:29
  • @lighthousekeeper there seems to be increasing number of hoax conferences everywhere. I no longer look at wikiCFP myself. – Memming Oct 26 '17 at 12:24

    The last link seems to have fallen to bit rot. – henning -- reinstate Monica Jun 6 '18 at 11:50

Just google for research conference websites you will get lot of them. I personally use Www. edas.info it sorts all the conferences according to your need e.g area, date wise, region etc

There are plenty of such services, for instance:

and I am sure you can find many more. I tend to be cautious with those, and trust a little more those maintained by individual, universities and academic associations. If they do not have mailing lists, you can subscribe to services of website content changes.

As for post-docs positions, they might be much less centralized.
