[[Code of Conduct|conduct]]
EmacsConf is the conference about the joy of Emacs, Emacs Lisp, and
memorizing key sequences.
We are holding EmacsConf 2020 as a virtual (online) conference again
this year, especially now, given the current state of the world with
the ongoing global pandemic. We remain fully committed to freedom, and
we will continue using our infrastructure and streaming setup
consisting entirely of [free software][freesw], much like the last
EmacsConf. Check out the [[**Schedule**|schedule]] and
[[**Poster**|poster]] for more details.
On November 28 and 29 you will be able to watch the livestreams via
<https://live.emacsconf.org>, which also has details on how to watch the
streams using media players that support streaming (like mpv and VLC).
We'll record the conference and post the videos and links on the
individual talk pages. In the meantime, please enjoy
[last year's talks](https://emacsconf.org/2019/talks/).
For audience questions specifically, we will be experimenting with
using a collaboratively-editable Etherpad as the primary means of
collecting audience questions. We will be posting a link to the pad
closer to the event. If, however, you are unable to access the pad to
add your question(s), we will still try to take questions from our
questions-specific IRC channel (`#emacsconf-questions` on
`chat.freenode.net`), and ask one or two volunteers to kindly add
questions from that channel to the pad on behalf of folks who are not
able to or prefer not to use the web-based questions pad.
Come hang out with us in `#emacsconf` on `chat.freenode.net`. You can
join the chat using [your favourite IRC client][ircs], or by visiting
[chat.emacsconf.org][chat] in your web browser, a self-hosted instance
of [The Lounge][thelounge] free software web IRC client for EmacsConf.
Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list
[emacsconf-discuss][emacsconf-discuss] for discussion and
announcements about the conference.
