Time really flies. It’s hard to believe that the first national skeptical conference of the season is NECSS 2013 (The Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism), hosted by the New York City Skeptics and the New England Skeptical Society, is fast approaching. In fact, it’s only a little more than two months away. The conference will be held in New York City on April 5-7. Sadly, that conflicts with the American Association for Cancer Research meeting, meaning that I’ll be in Washington, DC that weekend and can’t go. (As an aside, maybe anyone from the DC area who also can’t go to NECSS and will be around April 6 to 10 might be interested in a meetup?)
The NECSS lineup is stellar, and includes: keynote speaker physicist Leonard Mlodinow, author of The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives. There’s also Simon Singh, Michael Shermer, Mariette DiChristina (editor of Scientific American) and lots of other great speakers, and, of course, performances of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe podcast and Rationally Speaking podcast.
