CSICON *Committee for Skeptical Inquiry Convention
The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry promotes science and scientific inquiry, critical thinking, science education, and the use of reason in examining important issues. It encourages the critical investigation of controversial or extraordinary claims from a responsible, scientific point of view and disseminates factual information about the results of such inquiries to the scientific community, the media, and the public. https://www.csicop.org/ https://csiconference.org/ This year's conference is jam-packed with speakers including Stephen Fry, Richard Dawkins, Steven Pinker, Kavin Senapathy, Yvette d'Entrmont, James Randi and Massimo Polidoro just to name a small few. CSICon is already one of the planet’s premier skeptics conferences, where hundreds of critical thinkers come to Las Vegas, the city of illusions, to hear from the leading lights of science and skepticism. For 2018, we want CSICon to be bigger than ever. We even booked a bigger hotel! Come to Las Vegas October 18-21 at the Westgate Resort and Casino to see: The brilliant and hilarious Stephen Fry on stage with Richard Dawkins A special opening night conversation featuring James The Amazing Randi with Massimo Polidoro A talk by Steven Pinker on the ideas behind his new book Enlightenment Now PLUS: New York Times science writer Carl Zimmer, psychologist and memetics expert Susan Blackmore, the “SciBabe” Yvette d’Entremont, virologist and advocate for science-based medicine Paul Offit, and many more, along with comic-musician George Hrab serving as master of ceremonies, a magic show from Banachek, author book signings, and, of course, a Halloween Costume Party. It’s true, conspiracy theorists, quacks peddling fake medicine, and the deniers of evolution, climate change, and vaccine science are bigger threats than ever. With CSICon 2018, let’s show them that they just met their match. We’ll see you in Vegas! There are special flight rates on the website with both Delta and Southwest Airlines and special hotel rates on site of the convention. The hotel is offering $89 a night rates. Please use this page in the comments to find others who are interested in attending and maybe sharing a room and taking a flight together. Go ahead and sign up here as an expression of interest - does not commit you to go. You must sign up on their website to reserve your spot.
