The European Skeptics Congress is about to kick off at Goldsmiths College, London. The formal programme commences on Friday 11th September. The meeting looks really stimulating. It includes presentations on YouTube skepticism, global warming, the psychology of magic, quantum biology, and integrative medicine. However readers of this blog might be particularly interested in those presentations tagged Paranormal. They include members of Czech and German skeptical organisations reporting on their investigations of paranormal claims, plus yours truly describing the highlights of 30 years of research at the Koestler Parapsychology Unit.
