The story of CarbonFreeConf
The carbon footprint of academics is not negligible and higher than average. This is in part due to academic conferences, implying many long-distance travels to present new research results. One way to thwart these carbon emissions would be to go virtual for most conferences, when possible. To do so, researchers need an easy way to set up their virtual conferences and manage their participants. Moreover, the platform they use should have all the necessary tools to share their research more readily. CarbonFreeConf was developed by a researcher for researchers with these goals in mind as we explain in further detail in these proceedings. In addition, virtual conferences organized with CarbonFreeConf are totally carbon-free as (the low) emissions produced during the conference (from streaming and computer energy usage) are compensated with already approved carbon removal technologies.
