The largest annual gathering of skeptics in the region is returning to New York City this spring with expanded offerings.
The Northeast Conference on Science and Skepticism will run from April 5 to 7 in the Haft Auditorium at the Fashion Institute of Technology. The three-day event will include workshops, expert panels, and live podcasts.
The keynote speaker at the conference is Leonard Mlodinow, a theoretical physicist and professor at the California Institute of Technology. In addition to authoring scientific papers on mathematical physics and quantum optics, he has written for the New York Times, Newsweek and Wired. His most recent book is Subliminal: How Our Unconscious Mind Rules Our Behavior.
