Post QED Conference Manchester February 5th-6th 2011

The Merseyside and Manchester skeptics societies just announced the QED skeptical science conference.

It's going to be at the Ramada Piccadilly hotel in Manchester on February 5th-6th 2011 and will be hosted by George Hrab of Geologic podcast fame. I think I'll go!

They've just put tickets on sale for this and announced four speakers; Eugenie Scott, Jon Ronson, Jim Al-Khalili and Bruce Hood.

I've booked my ticket! :)

It's almost upon us! I don't know if anyone else from here is going but I'm sure looking forward to it!

Just in case anyone is interested, I'll say that I went and it was great! Just as interesting speakers as at TAM London but with a slightly more relaxed atmosphere due to there being only 350 or so attendees instead of close on 1000 and the bar being across the hall from the conference!

I would have been tempted to go had I not already bought tickets for the Uncaged Monkeys thing in May.

Nothing has been confirmed yet but the vibe seems to be that it will become an annual thing, so maybe I'll see you guys there next year!

Just got my tickets for the Manchester Uncaged Monkeys, too!
