Welcome to pretalx's documentation
pretalx is an open source conference management tool for managing conferences. 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. You can then 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 work a lot 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, but this website will never be perfect, or even complete. 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.
You want to install and maintain pretalx on your own server? Read about different ways to set things up.
You want to interact with pretalx using its RESTful API? We've got you covered.
You want to contribute to pretalx, either to fix bugs, or to introduce that feature you're missing? Setup instructions and helpful instructions are over here.
A list of everything in our documentation. Don't forget to let us know if you can't find something!
