Welcome to pretalx's documentation
pretalx is an open source conference management tool. It starts you off by creating a Calls for Participation that is exactly right for you. You can then review incoming submissions with your team and choose the best ones. Once you've made your choice, create the best schedule for your conference with our schedule editor. It even takes into account when your speakers are available! And it can do even more – check the features page for details.
We aim to make our documentation as up to date, usable and complete as possible. We want you to be able understand, use, run, and improve pretalx. That said, documentation is never finished, and rarely perfect. If there is anything unclear or missing in our documentation, or if pretalx behaves in unexpected ways, we'd be happy if you'd let us know.
