They say "New Orleans lingers on the threshold between the Old World and the New, between history and legend." (Actually the convention bureau says that.) Separating history from legend is one of the things skeptics love best—right up there with sifting science from pseudoscience and combing brilliance from bull.
At CSICON you can do all that, and more—on the boundary of the bayou. It's a conference like no other, uniting the romance of New Orleans and the shiver of Halloween weekend. But there will be more than voodoo and spirits in the air. Join us for four days of fun, mystery and take-no-prisoners skeptical inquiry in the heart of the famous New Orleans French Quarter.
And who knows, maybe you'll see the ghost of Jean Lafitte (but we are skeptical).
