Ever since the awesomeness that was Dragon*Con, we Skepchicks have been plotting a convention of our own. We like the idea of working skeptical programming into an existing con structure, so we’ve been working with the folks from Convergence, the Minneapolis sci-fi con, and they’ve agreed to give us a skepticism track within the existing science track.
Convergence takes place July 2-6, 2009. Most of us will be there, and we want as many of you as possible. We’re working on getting some great guests to join us, too. PZ Myers will be there, and more will be announced as they are confirmed.
In addition to lots of great panels and discussions, we’ll be hosting a Skepchick Pajama party, which I’m sure will include your favorite drinks from the now infamous Skepchick Drink Contest, and will absolutely be far too much fun.
So don’t wait! Register now! If you get in before the new year, it’s only $35 (okay, it’s $38.25 after the convenience fees).
Keep your eyes peeled for more information as we get it.
See you there!
