Features to fit all your needs

pretalx is suitable for a wide variety of events – from technical conferences to music festivals. You can find the most important functions below. Missing something? Ask us! Chances are it's either already included, or can be added. Nothing is impossible!

  • Publish your CfP

    Publish a beautiful Call for Papers that looks exactly like you want it. You can include your conference logo, customize the colors shown, or even upload additional CSS of your own if you require larger changes!
    You can set multiple deadlines for different submission types (if you want to accept workshops longer than regular talks), accept talks in multiple languages, and even run on your chosen domain.

  • Talk selection

    Select the best talks from your submissions by assembling a team of reviewers, and letting them rate and review your submissions. You can ask reviewers additional questions, e.g. to help you sort talks by track or experience level, or to work against reviewer bias.

  • Communicate effectively

    Communicate effectively with your speakers! pretalx allows you to configure email templates in multiple languages. To make sure that you say exactly what you want to say, emails are placed in an outbox so that you can review or edit them before hitting "Send" – give the communication with your speakers the personal touch they deserve.
    You can also provide information and downloads for speakers on their pretalx profile pages.

  • Scheduling

    Figure out the best schedule with all the help pretalx can give you! Your speakers will submit their availability during your event, so that you can accommodate everybody. pretalx will warn you when talks are scheduled in conflict with those availabilities – including making sure that a speaker isn't supposed to be in several places at once. ☺ Release your schedule publicly, for the world to see! You can update your schedule at any time, and your attendees can follow the RSS feed (or look at the public changelog) to keep track of changes.
    You can also download a static export of all schedule pages, if you want to host the schedule somewhere else.

  • Also - @pretalx has a great interface for reviewing talks; and when I found a minor UX niggle, I reported it and @rixxtr had it resolved in a matter of hours.
