What is NECSS?

The Northeast Conference on Science & Skepticism (pronounced “nexus”) is a science and critical thinking conference held annually in New York City. NECSS welcomes leading scientists, educators, activists, and artists who educate and engage conference attendees through individual presentations, panel discussions, and performance pieces.

Who is NECSS for? What type of people will you meet at NECSS?

NECSS is for everyone! NECSS attracts hundreds of people, from all different walks of life, from around the world. It is a forum for the general public to mingle with scientists, educators, philosophers, medical professionals, students, and many other people that you might not ordinarily meet. Everyone can find something of interest during these four days of conversation!

Besides Lectures, what else is there to do at NECSS?

NECSS is as much a meeting of minds as it is a lecture series. Every day there are breaks between lectures to talk with your fellow attendees and nightly meetups at local venues to mingle and discuss the topics of the day. There are hands-on workshops on Thursday. Resources will also be available to connect and communicate with your fellow attendees before, during, and after the conference!
