The 2013 Ig® Nobel Prize Ceremony & Lectures


Thursday, September 12, 2013 (All day)


Sanders Theatre

The 23nd First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony will introduce ten new Ig Nobel Prize winners. Each has done something that makes people laugh then think. The winners travel to the ceremony, at their own expense, from several continents. The Prizes are handed to them by a group of genuine, genuinely bemused Nobel Laureates, in Harvard's historic, largest theater filled with 1100 improbable persons, everything broadcast live on international television. The ceremony will include many other delights—see details below. (For the latest Ig Nobel news, see the blog.)


TICKETS for the ceremony will go on sale TUESDAY, JULY 16, at NOON (US eastern time), exclusively from the Harvard Box Office (online, in person, and by telephone). Tickets generally sell out early. (It is possible that a very few tickets will become available on the day of the ceremony. If so, we will announce that on twitter — @improbresearch).
