SkeptiCamp Winnipeg is a conference for the sharing of ideas. It is free and open to the public: anyone can attend and participate! Presentations and discussions focus on science and critical thinking, and the audience is encouraged to challenge presenters to defend their ideas.
SkeptiCamp is based on the highly successful BarCamp model. The basic idea is that attendees are participants; everyone attending SkeptiCamp is encouraged to participate: this may take the form of presenting a short talk on a topic related to science and skepticism, helping coordinate and plan the event, or simply taking active part in the discussion.
