The Ig Nobel ceremony happens one week from today.

The 29th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony will happen one week from today—on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 6:00 pm (US east coast time)—at Sanders Theatre, Harvard University.

If you want TICKETS, you’d best act quickly. Only a few are still available, from the Harvard Box Office.

Ten new Ig Nobel Prize winners will be revealed. Their prizes will be handed to them by a gaggle of bemused Nobel laureates. There will be a new opera (“Creatures of Habit”). And other stuff.

The ceremony will be webcast live, as it has been every year since 1995.

And two days later, the Lectures at MIT…

This year, for the second straight year, we will also webcast the Ig Informal Lectures at MIT, in which the new winners each give a brief public talk, and answer questions. That event—on Saturday, September 14, 2019, at 1:00 pm, is co-organized by the MIT Press Bookstore. You don’t need a ticket to attend the Saturday MIT Lectures, but seating is limited, so think about getting there a bit early.
