Running a virtual conference can be hard work

How do I organise video streaming and Q&A?
How will attendees socialise with one another?
How do I run poster sessions and exhibitions?
What about providing booths for our sponsors?

Clowdr solves these problems and more, giving you time to focus on the thing that really matters: bringing people together.

Here are just a few of our great features:

Audiovisual production
We can collect videos from presenters, stitch them together, integrate live Q&A sessions and stream it to your conference.
Realtime chat
You and your attendees can create and drift between video and text rooms. Or use our random pairing system to meet someone new!
Expert support
Our team has years of experience delivering great conferences. Our founders coauthored the ACM report on virtual conferences.
Open source
Clowdr is open source - and we are dedicated to supporting the academic community.
