Is there a way to progamatically detect whether a list is a Calendar?  We have code that iterates through all the lists in the site collection hierarchy looking for calendars.  However, we'd like to have it be able to detect whether a list is a calendar just by looking at some list property.  

Right now, we're relying on the fact that the user has used the word "calendar" in the name of the calendar.

Basically you will have to right a query that can go and search each content data base especially views table where fields are like start time end time and other fields like calendars normally have .

Also  calendar is just a view of  list . so you can also search all your lists by using content and structure option on site settings on any site collection it will also give you a broader view if a list is being used as calendar or not

another way to find all the list in one short and look at there details
