See wiki.hacdc.org/index.php/Area_science_event_info for the "instruction manual" for this list. NOTE: Many events have been canceled (& information may not have been updated). Checking before going to any event is highly recommended. Also note that updates may be few & far between since I don't have internet access at home.
