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!

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.
WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be.
