What is Skepticamp?

SkeptiCamps are informal, community-organized conferences borne from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. Everyone from casual skeptics to the experienced participate, give talks and get to know each other.

Diverging from the traditional lecture events which have dominated skepticism for decades, these ‘open events’ tear down the barriers to organizing substantive (and fun) events by building on the wildly-successful Barcamp conference model from the tech community.

In essence, Skepticamps are conferences for participants, by participants. Attendees are the speakers and the speakers are attendees. Anyone can be a speaker, just reserve yourself a slot and talk!

*pre-registration is encouraged, however

About Skepticamp Australia

While AU Skepticamps had been in discussion for a while, Skepticamp Australia was kicked off at The Amazing Meeting Australia 2010, during a panel talk on Skeptical Activism. A question came from moderator Brian Dunning "What would you do for activism if you were handed a budget?"

My answer was that I would organise a skepticamp, to inspire, inform and motivate skeptics in Australia. And I said that if people gave me some money there and then, that's exactly what I'd do.

Immediately, panelists and audience members offered money, and by the end of the weekend, Skepticamp was firmly implanted as an upcoming event.
