EmacsConf is the conference about the joy of Emacs, Emacs Lisp, and memorizing key sequences.


See live.emacsconf.org for the livestream feeds you can watch in your browser, as well as instructions for watching them in media players that support streaming.


IRC, specifically the freenode network, is our primary real-time communication channel. You can join the chat using your favourite IRC client or the chat.emacsconf.org webchat.

Below are the official EmacsConf IRC channels:

  • #emacsconf: the main IRC channel for EmacsConf.
  • #emacsconf-questions: dedicated to audience questions, more moderated than the main channel to keep traffic lower so that the organizers or the speakers could easily get to people's questions without having to sift through unrelated messages.
  • #emacsconf-accessible: discussion around EmacsConf's accessibility. On November 2, please use this channel to post transcriptions or descriptive texts about what's happening during each talk.
  • #emacsconf-org: dedicated channel for EmacsConf organizers and speakers, intended as an internal, low-traffic space. For general discussion around the conference please use #emacsconf instead, unless there's an urgent matter requiring immediate attention of the organizers.

Lastly, be sure to subscribe to our mailing list emacsconf-discuss for general discussion and announcements about the conference.


We have set up a status page at status.emacsconf.org where we will post latest updates on any disruptions to various parts of our infrastructure. If you notice a problem or experience disruption that's not acknowledged there, please join the #emacsconf-org IRC channel and send a message about it.


This year, we are holding EmacsConf as an online conference. We will be using free software tools exclusively throughout our infrastructure, with a detailed write-up of our setup coming after the conference.
