An Open Conference on Science and Skepticism, where you can be a presenter!

"Skepticamp NYC 2010 seems to have been a rousing success! Thanks to everyone who attended, presented, helped out, or had their evil plans to ruin it fail!" - Mitch Lampert, lead organizer

What is it?!
SkeptiCamp is like a science conference, except that the content is provided by the attendees themselves! Some prefer to call it an "unconference" for that reason.

It is based on a successful model of gatherings referred to as "BarCamp", which have primarily focused on technology. (It has nothing to do with bars. The name has its own rich history,you can read about on our Etymology page). Our conference will focus on topics related to science, critical thinking, and other notions that appeal to a skeptical crowd.

Conventional conferences tend to follow a standard pattern of linear presentation, followed by Q&A. We hope the sessions and presentations given at SkeptiCamp NYC are more like lively discussions, than straight seminars. Perhaps even a few workshops will be sprinkled in. Presenters could welcome the bombardment of questions, after their initial introduction to the topic is made. Or, some may choose to err on the side of convention.

SkeptiCamp is intended for adults, though young adults can also join us, if they'd like.

Anyone who can be in the New York City area, at the given date and time is invited to join and... perhaps even lead a session of your own!
