QED is a two-day science and skepticism convention taking place at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on the 12th-13th April 2014.
Fantastic speakers from the worlds of science and entertainment will be joining us for a weekend celebration of science, reason and critical thinking.
QED is organised by North West Skeptical Events Ltd, a volunteer-owned non-profit organisation. We aim for QED to break even and any surplus is reinvested in future events or donated to good causes. None of the organisers benefit financially from QED, we give our time and effort for free because we love doing this.
