SKEPTICAMP SYDNEY 2012
Saturday, May 26, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM (AEST)
TICKETS ARE NOW CLOSED, BUT THERE ARE STILL SOME AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR!
Rock up and introduce yourself, and join us at Skepticamp Sydney!
Skepticamp Sydney is back!
To be held at Sydney's UTS Campus, Skepticamp is the unconference for skeptics. What's an unconference, you say? Well, in the words of Skepticamp.org:
"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."
That means skepticamp is a conference for the delegates by the delegates.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a topic to speak on, everyone is encouraged to bring questions, and everyone can help out on the day.
If you wish to give a presentation, let us know via email, twitter or the Skepticamp Wiki. However, speaking slots will not be locked in until the day of the event so get there early to be guaranteed a spot.
Projectors will be available to speakers, please bring a USB stick and/or laptop with your presentation if required.
As a side event during SkeptiCamp Sydney 2012, there will also be CupCakeCamp!
What Is CupCakeCamp?
CupCakeCamp is a delicious, collaborative event that will be happening during Skepticamp. Like Skepticamp, it's free to join in and everyone is encouraged to contribute.
How Do I Participate?
Get baking! This is your chance to show off your culinary skills. If possible, bring a sign so that your fellow Skeptics know what they're eating - What flavour are your cakes? Do they contain nuts? Are they gluten or animal product-free?
Bring a batch of your best cupcakes along, and ask an unOrganiser to direct you to Bronwyn or Bea.
At a designated time during the day, Skepticamp attendees will be given the opportunity to taste-test the cupcakes and vote for their favourite. There will be prizes and bragging rights for the winners of Skepticamp Sydney's CupCakeCamp!
Skepticamp Sydney 2012 will be held at the University of Technology, Sydney, on Broadway, Rooms CB02.04.10 and CB02.04.13. The event is easily reached by public transport, and is well served in terms of facilities.
More info can be found at http://skepticampaustralia.org (keep your eyes peeled because the info here will evolve as the day approaches!)
Finally, we're looking for sponsors to help out with Lunch and Post-unConference Drinks, at a venue TBD. We'd also love to give out prizes for the best presentations on the day. If you would like to sponsor the event, please contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @skepticampau.
