NECSS 2019 - Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism

Registration is not only NOW OPEN, but as far as I can tell, all of the bugs they initially had on the registration form have been worked out. So, now's the BEST time to get your tickets!

https://necss.org/

Taking place July 11 to 14, 2019; in Manhattan (that's in NYC), at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Carl Zimmer is the Keynote speaker. He's done a lot for parasites, you know... I mean in a scientific research sense, that is.

Comedian Leighann Lord, is once again, the MC. She's held that role for a few years now, so that's nothing new.

Other guests include, but are not limited to:
  • All of the Rogues of the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe (The Novellas, etc.)
  • Mary Roach (Author, Science Communication)
  • Paul Offit (Pediatrician and co-inventor of rotavirus vaccine)
  • George Hrab (The Man. The Legend.)
  • Eric Walton (Magician, Mentalist, and possible George Hrab clone)
  • Brian Wecht (Physicist, and the "Ninja" part of Ninja Sex Party)
  • Heather Berlin (Cognitive Neuroscientist)
  • Yelena Bernadskaya (biologist, and Doctor Who fanatic)
  • Spiro Condos (Dentist, and former President of NYC Skeptics)
  • Russ Dobler (Science Editor for: Adventures in Poor Taste)
  • Liz Gaston (Educator and stuff)
  • Debbie Goddard (Vice President, Programs at American Atheists)
  • David Gorski (I think he's there every year.)
  • Randi Hutter Epstein, MD, MPH (Author, Medical Writer, Adjunct Professor)
  • Andrea Jones-Rooy (Social Scientist specializing in complexity)
  • Brant MacDuff (A taxidermist, for some reason. I don't know why.)
  • Neville Sanjana (Bioengineer)
  • Odaelys Walwyn (Microbiologist, Immunologist, and Educator)

Every evening there is some sort of show or social gathering to keep you up at night, if you want it.

You know, I probably should have added an attendee chart to this thing. Append your name, if you are attending.

In a comically desperate attempt to inject some interest into this thread, I thought I might toss in a random pop culture reference, for no particular reason. Maybe it might show up in searches more often this way. I dunno...

I will be at NECSS too, volunteer as always, been to all of them and a volunteer at all of them.

For those who have not attended, I have to say you are missing out on a great conference. I don't usually get to see much of the conference but I always enjoy the bits I get to see. The speakers are all really great and the panel discussions are handled so well. I never really enjoyed the panels at TAM but NECSS does an amazing job of having great moderators that keep the panels on point, I always enjoy it when I can see them.

Do you want me to add you to the table? If so, shall I add your real name? I think you attended all of the NECSSes, or are there any you missed? Who is your favorite member of BlackPink? (Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like any of them are skeptically inclined. Lisa, for example, seems to believe in ghosts. Fortunately, the column isn't terribly relevant to anything, so perhaps it doesn't matter.)
