Skeptical Inquirer — Conference Report
A Lively CSICon 2012 Nashville Eyes Latest Trends in Science, Pseudoscience, and Belief
Even before CSICon 2011 in New Orleans officially began, I was already having great conversations with skeptics from all over the country. It was amazing to see people from so many places convening in one place to celebrate reason, science, and skeptical inquiry.
A Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI) conference has been long-awaited since the last event held in 2003. The inaugural CSICon, the conference dedicated to scientific inquiry and critical thinking, was held October 27–30, 2011.
Like its earlier CSICOP conference predecessors, CSICon New Orleans 2011 was rich with provocative ideas, good science, critical thinking, informed analysis, and penetrating criticism of claims poorly supported by scientific evidence.
