I am very excited to announce that I will be a guest at the NECSS conference in New York in September!

NECSS (pronounced “nexus”) was born out of the desire to hold a major skeptical gathering on the East Coast of the United States, specifically in New York City.

As its name suggests, NECSS seeks to explore the intersection of science, media, education, politics, and popular culture, and examine how we may best utilize that understanding to promote a more rational world.

NECSS is produced by the New England Skeptical Society and New York City Skeptics.

The 2009 line-up of speakers and panelists includes:

Date: Saturday September 12, 2009

Time: 10:00AM – 6:00PM

Location: Florence Gould Hall at the French Institute, 55 E. 59th St. New York, NY (between Madison and Park Avenues). See the website for ticketing and more information.

I will be heading to NECSS after Dragon*Con which is held on the Labor Day weekend (September 4 – September 7, 2009) in Atlanta, GA, USA. Here, I will be on four panels with the likes of James Randi, Steve Novella and of course Richard Saunders and Kylie Sturgess. Phew!

    Sweet! Something near me that I can probably afford to attend. Will have to check out family obligations and cost but hopefully I’ll be there and get to meet you, Maggie!

  • Unfortunately it appears that woo will have a free reign for a few weeks. Just don’t tell them I’m gone.

  • Who is left in your stead to defend us from the uneducated minions of woo :0
