Skepticon IV poster released

Skepticon IV is coming up!  Skepticon is an annual conference in Springfield, MO that is one of the biggest every year.  Last year over 1,000 people attended and this year looks to be even bigger!  They just released this year’s poster and it kicks every ass in the barn.

Among the lineup of exceptional speakers you will find a few residents of Freethought Blogs such as myself, Jen McCreight, Greta Christina, and the go-to headliner for any atheist conference, PZ Myers.

Skepticon is unique among the major conference in that it is free to attend.  All you must do is register and get yourself there – which you should do soon if you plan to attend.  There are seven weeks until Skepticon IV and the Gilloiz Theater is already over half full and that’s not counting all the people who register at the door (which was a lot last year).  This year the Skepticon Team has also introduced other ways to save money such as ride and room sharing.

If you are a student at a high school or a college, the Skepticon Team is rolling out a program for sending a stack of 24″ x 36″ posters to hang up on your campus.  The posters should be in around mid-October.  If you’d like to help promote the event, email Katie Hartman.

I hope to see you there!

    Sweet, you’re getting Jamie Kilstein. Great guy. I listen to his podcast and saw him live in Toronto just last night.

    I expect he won’t pander to the atheist crowd with just anti-religious humour. He’ll try to rile you with rants about politics or feminism or eating meat, or other topics that atheists don’t all agree on already. And that will be good.

    I signed up for ride and room sharing early on, but never heard anything back (and now the speakers’ hotel rooms are pretty much booked up). Were messages ever sent out to people who signed up for sharing?

      I’m not sure. :( I’m pretty much just a speaker this year. Email your question to zewlie[at]gmail[dot]com. She will likely have an answer for you. :)
