Skepticamps are designed to give many members the opportunity to briefly (20 minutes) present on a topic of their choice. So, if you want to share something on a skeptically-related topic in which you are interested; or highlight some practices that you see as dubious that need to be bought to the attention of the Skeptics’ community; or just something that we might find interesting please offer to share your thoughts. This is a sharing event, where many contributors combine to a great day. in an idyllic location.
