Oh, I follow you. Sorry.
Um, a couple of ways.
The Ansible lists a lot of them. That's available weekly via email or on the Web.
Locus often talks about them, usually in retrospect, but then you'd know to watch for next year.
Look at people's LJs and Web sites. For example, the right hand bar of my layout (which you won't see if you're reading me via f-list) includes all the cons, conferences and book fests I'm at this year.
Really, once you start going, you learn by networking, too.
