Anyone can sign up to give a 10 minute talk. Think of a topic that YOU would like to talk about that is related to skepticism. Organizers do not vet topics and speakers are selected on a first-come first-served basis.
If you are interested in giving a talk, you must register by September 27, 2013. Presentations have a strict 10 minute limit which is rigorously enforced. After your talk, the audience will have up to 10 minutes to discuss your topic with you. Slides or an outline of your presentation are due by November 1.
Given the difficultly of presenting a topic in only 10 minutes, we recommend you practise your talk in advance, and check its typical length. We scheduled three optional “bootcamps” to help. Bootcamps will be held on September 21, 25 and 28 at 7pm at the Tipper Restaurant (2066 Kingsway @ Victoria St, Vancouver BC).
