I will also be presenting on two subsidiary topics:

Below, you’ll find our official announcement.

We look forward to having you along for the ride!

Greetings, fellow Emacsians!

  • Schedule

On behalf of the EmacsConf 2020 organizers team, I’m very happy to announce the schedule for EmacsConf 2020 (Nov 28 and 29). We have worked with each speaker to try and schedule the talks in a way that works reasonably well for as many speakers as possible with respect to each speaker’s availability. But even so, there may be potential changes in the weeks leading up to the conference, or even during the conference itself (like last year). Please keep this in mind when looking over the deceivingly granular time slot minutes (a side-effect of our automated schedule generation :slight_smile: ).

  • Poster

Paul Sutton has created an awesome poster for EmacsConf 2020 that you could share with others to help spread the word about the conference! Please check the link for a preview of the poster and links to the various formats it is available in, along with the source ODG file.

Paul has kindly licensed this poster under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license, and you are more than welcome to modify/change it or even use it under the terms of the CC BY-SA 4.0 free culture license as a basis for a poster for your own event. Thanks for the cool poster, Paul!

  • How to Watch

On November 28 and 29 you will be able to watch the livestreams via, which also has details on how to watch the streams using media players that support streaming (like mpv and vlc).

  • How to Participate

The page will soon contain detailed information about the EmacsConf IRC channels on the freenode network, and instructions for connecting and participating. You can join using your favourite IRC client, or using the EmacsConf instance of The Lounge web IRC client ( via your browser. More details about this will be added to the page over the following days after this announcement.

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, 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.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email us on our public mailing list (, or join us in the IRC channel #emacsconf on the freenode network.

This message was originally sent on the mailing list, which you can find here.


All your topics look great! Not sure if I can join the live stream, but would love to watch recordings Would that be available at a later date?

Yes, we will be recording the talks, and you’ll be able to find them on our website, similar to what we did last year (cf.
