A half-afternoon of improbably funny, informative, brief (5 minutes each, plus a few questions & answers with the audience), high-spirited public lectures, in which the new Ig Nobel Prize winners will attempt to explain what they did, and why they did it.
The new winner's talks will be preceded by brief (2 minutes each) talks by past winners Kees Moeliker (Ig Nobel Biology Prize 2003); Gauri Nanda, and Lynn Halpern. Each will discuss their most recent discoveries.
This free event is organized in cooperation with the MIT Press Bookstore.
