In our Search Engine Watch Forums, we also have an entire area devoted to discussion and coverage of search-related events. Some recent threads of interest are:
- 2005: Conference listings: A call for people to list interesting shows and events for next year.
- WebmasterWorld World of Search Conference #7: No discussion of the show yet, but that may come.
For now, mainly a place for people to coordinate meet-ups.
- Search Engine Strategies Events: SES Chicago this year or SES New York next year? I and others
offer some advice to a person trying to decide.
- Ad:Tech New York: Andrew Goodman provides a long post on interesting search sessions out of the show earlier this month.
And via John Battelle's blog, news that the venerable Search Engine Meeting has posted its new agenda for next year. The conference takes an academic look at search both on the web and across the enterprise.
