SkeptiCal is the inaugural Northern California Science and Skepticism Conference.

We have a skeptacular line-up of speakers, including Genie Scott, Brian Dunning, Seth Shostak, Brian Malow and me! The schedule includes lectures, breakout sessions and exhibits, and we’ll be talking creationism, psychics, alternative medicine, global warming, skepticism in the media, and much more.

SkeptiCal will be held on April 24, 2010, from 9Am to 6 PM at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, CA. We’ll also be holding a Skeptics in the Pub bash the Friday evening beforehand. More details to follow.

This event is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Bay Area Skeptics, and the Sacramento Area Skeptics.

Admission is limited, and we expect to sell out, so I encourage you to register soon. The cost is $40, or $55 including a spanking t-shirt!

Hope to see you there!

  1. @Skept-artist I’m still unsure as to what @BadKen means. If he’s referring to the title, it’s either short and snappy (and I came up with SkeptiCal…) or it’s something frightfully long-winded or ambiguous, like NECSS…

    …Anyway, yes! Just like a NECSS for the west coast.

    This will be a 200-attendees event and we hope to get bigger and better next year.

  2. Gah! That’s what I deserve for dropping a comment and not coming back for a couple days.

    Yeah, I was referring to the punny conference name.

    And really, nobody wants a BadKenGetsLaid conference. It would only be of interest to paleontologists, if anyone at all.

  3. Karen, I’m on the east coast so I will not be at the conference, but I simply wanted to tell you that I truly enjoyed the Point of Inquiry podcast of 3/19. VERY well done!!!
