What is it?
SkeptiCal is the Northern California conference of science and skepticism, a day-long event with speakers, panels, and discussions on a wide array of subjects.
SkeptiCal will be held Saturday, June 15, 2013, at the Berkeley Doubletree Hotel.
We have speakers covering a wide variety of speakers this year, including legends, hoaxes, and frauds of science, the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, medical ethics, grassroots skepticism, and more.
Speakers for 2013 will include Dr. Eugenie Scott from the National Center for Science Education, Dr. Anthony Pratkanis from UC Santa Cruz, and a special virtual appearance by the father of modern skepticism, The Amazing James Randi himself (via Skype video)! Other speakers include DJ Grothe, also of the JREF, Dr. Jill Tarter of the SETI Institute, and more!
