The following is general helpful advice to german-studies members, by way
of offering a less-helpful reply to James Parsons's query:

Although I have no personal recollection of such an announcement, I do have
three pieces of advice for anyone in similar situations:
1) Most discussion lists, including this one, offer searchable archives of
all previous posts on the list. Our searchable archive is at
http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/lists/german-studies.html The top link there
takes you to the search page.
2) http://germanistik.net/ posts all conferences world-wide that are
related to Germanistik from all Web sources (including list archives).
Perhaps you'll find the conference you were thinking of there, although I
find no exact match to your query when I search for the strings "creat",
"kreat", or "biogra" in the conference calendar there.
3) At the bottom of that page
(http://polyglot.lss.wisc.edu/german/irfg/0.htm) there are links to more
general conference calendars, such as humanities or history, where you may
find the conference you're looking for.
