As you probably have noticed, Eventseer has changed a lot—and hopefully for the better. We are really excited about this release which we feel is a major step in the right direction. We wanted to preserve what was good about the old version while at the same time make it more user-friendly, easier to navigate, and even more useful as a research tool.
You can now claim person pages. This enables you to edit the default information about yourself and even use your page as a research blog. Whenever you write about something that interests you, other Eventseer users with similar interests will be alerted.
Other new features include the ability to add comments to events, improved search and navigation, a handy deadline calendar, and an easy way of inviting other people. Try it out and discover for yourself.
We will be rolling out a lot of exciting features down the road, so keep checking in at regular intervals! There simply wasn't time to include all of the feature requests we've received, but rest assured they're not forgotten. And do give us your comments and feedback—replies are guaranteed!

Search results should be a lot more accurate now. Place multiword terms within quotes to search for the whole term.

Thanks to all of you who have been sending me feature suggestions and bug reports. All requests are duly noted and will hopefully be taken care of in the next release.
For now, IE6 support is unfortunately still broken and I'm also getting reports that things don't look too good when using Firefox on Linux (supposedly, Opera should work better). I'm on it, though. Also, the due deadline sort option in the search results has now been fixed.

How to submit an event
Just send the event call as a plain text email with a descriptive subject header to firstname.lastname@example.org. Try to avoid HTML formatting if you can and make sure not to include the call as an attachment.

At the moment, only recent versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer (7+) and Firefox (2+) are supported. Firefox is the recommended option for Mac users; eventseer is not yet fully functional in Safari. IE6 does not work very well right now but will be supported in the near future. I recommend upgrading to IE7 anyway.

Welcome to the new and improved eventseer.net! I have made a number of functional and aesthetic changes to the site, hopefully making it even more useful than it used to be. Here is a breakdown of the main improvements:
- All call for papers are now associated with an event. This makes it easier to keep track of things: By subscribing to an event you will receive updates whenever new information is added for that event. Subscriptions for existing users have been updated to the new model.
- You can now keep track of events, people, topics and organizations. As an example, whenever a tracked person is mentioned in an event you will receive a notification. Just click the plus icon next to whatever you want to keep of track of and you're all set.
- All information on eventseer.net is now associated with a network of people, events and topics. This makes it easy to find people that share your interests or events that are relevant for a given topic.
I hope you enjoy this new release of eventseer.net. Make sure to subscribe to the news feed to get all the latest updates.
