Skeptics gather to discuss critical thinking, irrationality, science, pseudo-science and the paranormal and their effect on society. This guide lists conferences, unconferences, symposia, workshops and other multiple speaker events that cover skeptical topics in whole or in part.
In the US many of these events are sponsored or co-sponsored by the Center for Inquiry / Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CFI/CSI), Secular Student Alliance (SSA) or Skeptics Society / Skeptic Magazine. In Europe many are sponsored or co-sponsored by ECSO, the European Council of Skeptic Organizations or one of its member organizations.
