I am organizing a one day workshop as a part of a major conference in my field. I would like to have a website to
- introductory text (static html)
- announce things (some content management)
- keep everybody up to date (mailing list)
- maintain a pre-workshop and post-workshop online discussion forum
Is there a web service that would implement these things easily?
Also, I don't want the visitors to register accounts. Perhaps a mailing list accessible via web would be sufficient, since I do not expect anybody to regularly visit just to check the forum (except for myself). Is there a mailing list/forum service suitable for such purpose?
Free would be best. I am capable of building such website myself, but I do not want to host it nor spend too much time setting it up. In the past, I used wordpress.com, google sites, google groups and such...
