The Salon Event is a smaller TED-styled conference dedicated towards keeping our audience engaged leading up to the main TEDxUCSD conference. Held on-campus, it will feature the stories, innovations and research work of those from the UC San Diego community.
This year's theme "In Search of..." invites us to focus on our own goals, choices, and experiences – to remember that we hold the power to shape our lives through a culmination of decisions that may shape, teach, and inspire us. We aspire to examine the motivations and passions of those whom have achieved the success we hope to reach, and to discover how they grasped for the opportunities which propelled them towards where they are now.
TEDxUCSD 2014's videos have been uploaded to the TEDx YouTube channel!

What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
What is TEDxUCSD?
TEDxUCSD’s mission is to bring together leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in and to any discipline – technology, design, science, humanities, business, entertainment, and much more. Through a local forum, we hope to inspire people to change their lives, their futures and ultimately their world. We aim to engage, inspire, and celebrate all generations of the UCSD family.
