This article is from the Libraries FAQ, by Anthony Wilson paw@iglou.com with numerous contributions by others.

3.4 What conferences can I attend to keep my knowledge and skills up to date? (Librarian)

The Librarian's Datebook, maintained by Barbara Tysinger of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a comprehensive
listing of LIS conferences around the world,
http://www.hsl.unc.edu/libcal.htm
I would also suggest visiting the continuously updated LIBRES
Conferences and Meetings page,
http://www.curtin.edu.au/curtin/dept/sils/libres/meetings.htm .

The ALA's American Libraries Datebook,
http://www.ala.org/alonline/datebook/datebook.html, has information on
conferences, events (like National TV Turnoff Week), workshops and
study tours.

And if you need to convince your superiors that you must attend a
weekend conference in Barbados on "Book Repair for the New
Millennium", see: http://www.lib.rochester.edu/ssp/events/strategy.htm
