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!
