How to Create a Conference

Installing EasyChair for your conference is easy. You do not have to download or configure software or arrange backup procedures yourself. All you have to do is to fill out a simple form. We host all conferences on our server and use our own backup, recovery, mail sending and other procedures.

If you want to use EasyChair for managing a conference, you should create your conference first.

  1. Check our policy about conferences using EasyChair
  2. Create an account, if you do not have one.
  3. Log in to EasyChair and follow menu tabs "EasyChair" -> "Create new conference". You will be asked to fill out a simple form with information about your conference.
  4. We will verify the information you have specified. The verification process can take anywhere from a minute to 24 hours. On average it takes about 2 hours.
  5. If the request is approved, you will receive an email from us and the conference will appear under menu tabs "EasyChair" -> "My Conferences". Your conference will be ready to accept submissions and you will be the first chair (administrator) of your conference.


If you or your conference authors and reviewers need support, you should apply for a license that includes our helpdesk feature by using the menu item "License management" in the EasyChair menu.
