LogiCon was formed because of the need for secular outreach in Arkansas. A joint effort by many local secular groups, LogiCon has proven to be just what the area needs. The goal of LogiCon is to express the importance of reason, logic, and scientific education, support equality for all, and assist in advancing the secular movement forward.

LogiCon 2014 will feature the speakers, Dorion Sagan, Darrel Ray, Jerry DeWitt, Kyle Sanders, Doug Krueger, Cindy Cooper, Scott Austin, Lisa Corrigan, and JP Jennings. It will also host the premiere of, The Scarlet Letter, a documentary exploring the stigma surrounding the word “atheist”.

LogiCon 2012 was the very first year, but it still had some great guest speakers including Aron Ra, Tom Clark, Dr. Scott Austin, Doug Krueger, and Cindy Cooper. LogiCon 2012 also received permission from the director of the critically acclaimed movie, The Ledge, to host a viewing.

LogiCon is primarily funded by a Yearly Chapter Grant to the Northwest Arkansas Humanist Association, a local chapter of the American Humanist Association. The conference would not be possible without the support of several Secular Student Alliance groups, including Occam’s Razors, SSA @ UCA, and Legion of Logic.

Parking: Stadium Drive Garage or Harmon Avenue Garage

    Is this a free event or where can we go to purchase tickets? Thanks.

      There is no charge for admission! Donations are accepted both now and at the time of the event if you so desire.

      There may be merchandise at the event, but as of now the U of A has said no selling merchandise.

    Will this event be held in 2013. If so, when and where? Thank you.

    • Jason Bathon says:

      Hello Jeff, I am sorry for the long wait on a reply. In 2013 the Northwest Arkansas Humanist Association voted to focus on building membership.

      LogiCon will be back on again April 19th and 20th, 2014 at the Verizon Ballroom on the UofA campus.

      Please stay tuned to our website and Facebook pages for more info!
