16th European Skeptics Congress

Though not a huge meeting by today’s standards, the 16th European Skeptics Congress, co- organised by ASKE and APRU (the Anomalistic Research Unit at Goldsmiths College) was a highly successful meeting and feedback has been uniformly enthusiastic.  The congress website is still operating (http://euroscepticscon.org/) and post-congress information will appear in due course. Some audio recordings of talks will be online soon and Klaus Schmeh has a video of his talk on parascientific codes on YouTube at https://youtu.be/jS56Pe_nfsE.  Photographs of the congress may be viewed at https://flic.kr/p/yq4rw4 and a short video prepared by Mark Williams can be watched at https://youtu.be/_o1Rx-2QkEw.  A video recording of the debate on skepticism and medicine is at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4erJFq1Ds0 and https://youtu.be/xyiuzE5fueo.
