Skepticamp Ottawa 2014

This May 4th, join the Ottawa Skeptics for our fourth open conference event, Skepticamp Ottawa 2014.

Skepticamp

Skepticamps, modeled on the BarCamp approach of non-curated, user-driven content and participation, are entertaining, educational and informative events in a relaxed environment. The overall theme is science, skepticism and critical thinking. This year we are once again at the Shopify Lounge, right in the heart of downtown Ottawa. Come along to listen to some great talks, ask questions, and meet interesting people.

We have a full day of fascinating talks from 15 speakers, including three excellent keynotes: Katie Gibbs, co-founder of Evidence for Democracy; Michael Kruse, Chair of Bad Science Watch; and Jim Davies, Director of the Science of the Imagination Laboratory at Carleton University.

Talk synopses and speaker bios are available here, and here’s the full schedule.

Everyone’s welcome. To give us an idea of attendance please RSVP at meetup or on Facebook and check out the logistics page for more information. If you can’t make the full day, feel free to just drop in for the talks you want to see. We look forward to seeing you there!
