PaperCrowd is a free, community-driven, directory of academic conferences. Organisers use PaperCrowd to find new researchers for their event. Researchers use PaperCrowd to find new conferences they wish to attend.
We built PaperCrowd to fix the Call for Papers problem. Every chair who runs an academic conference emails a Call for Papers to promote the conference. The chair gathers a ton of email addresses from faculty, committee members, previous attendees etc into a single list and sends a mass email. This has 2 major flaws:
PaperCrowd fixes the problem in 2 ways:
PaperCrowd is built with ❤ by the team at Ex Ordo. We started as researchers and have been working with the research community since 2008. Our Ex Ordo online academic conference management system is used in 12 of the Top 20 universities in the world and in over 56 countries.
We’ve written a lot about the Call for Papers problem here and here on our blog. During our company reboot in Marrakesh in 2015 we talked about fixing the problem. The picture above is from the first PaperCrowd brainstorm session.
We’ve committed to developing PaperCrowd and keeping it free for the research community. If you’re organising an academic conference, please consider Ex Ordo as your online conference management system. This to help us pay the bills and keep improving PaperCrowd.
And if you have ideas on how else to fix the Call for Papers problem, or improve PaperCrowd, we’d love to hear from you.
