Open Source

Clowdr is proudly open-source. As a social enterprise, this is part of how we serve the academic community.

If you want to do-it-yourself, you can run your very own Clowdr. We also support researchers who want to modify Clowdr or use it in their research.

Good call on Clowdr – I have joined so many virtual conferences with fancy platforms and this is by far my favorite. Pretty easy to navigate and very straight forward – just what these types of academic conferences need.
