DragonCon: Science Track

I’m visiting the DragonCon Science Track for one panel on Sunday; check my schedule for the other tracks I’ll be at during DragonCon 2012.

Disasters Past, Present, and Future – Hear from the Feds

Sunday September 2: 11:30am-12:30pm
Hilton 202, 2nd floor

Ever wonder if the U.S. government is truly prepared to respond to a mass-casualty emergency? What about if 2, 3, or 4 occurred simultaneously?

Kara M. Stephens, Ali S. Khan, and Dave Leroy Daigle of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are experts on zombies. I’m a Master in Disaster, an expert in ways the planet is trying to kill us all. Between us, we spend our lazy Sunday afternoons dreaming up horrible ways for the world to end, then head back to work on Monday morning to try to keep it from happening. This panel is your chance to ask questions about just how bad things can go, what the government has planned, and what you can do to mitigate inevitable catastrophe.

We’re All Doomed, DOOMED!!! Or Are We?

Saturday September 1: 5:30pm-6:30pm
Hilton 202, 2nd floor

What are some real or imagined doomsday scenarios, how dangerous and likely are they? It’s eschatological fun for everyone!

With Matthew Prince Lowry and “others” at this point, it’s going to be similar to the Disasters: Past, Present, and Future panel, but a lot more speculative with the farthest reaches of what can go very, very wrong.
