Each year, on the Friday of QED weekend, the QED venue plays host to SkeptiCamp, a one-day completely-free conference of short skeptical-themed talks.

This year’s event is being run by our good friends at Skeptics in the Pub Online, who have just released this year’s line-up.

Starting at 11am, sixteen speakers from across the skeptical community will give a series of ten-minute talks, covering such diverse topics as mathematics, conspiracy theories in Turkey, Covid experiments in Sweden, AI images, moral panic memes, and the history of the placebo myth.

SkeptiCamp is free for anyone to attend, regardless of whether you’re also attending QED. There’s no need to book a ticket – you’re free to wander in and out of the event throughout the day.

SkeptiCamp is an excellent way to warm up for your full weekend of science, reason and critical thinking at QED, so be sure to check out the schedule and join us there for free, and you can also pick up your QED ticket for access to all sessions on Saturday and Sunday.
