The 16th European Skeptics Congress will be held at Goldsmiths College London from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th September 2015. The congress is held under the auspices of ECSO (the European Council of Skeptical Organisations), and is jointly organised by ASKE (the Association for Skeptical Enquiry) and APRU (the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths College).
More information is available at the web site for the conference.
The French documentary film The Wall (Le mur), which takes issue with psychoanalytic views on autism, has caused some uproar over the past few months, even drawing attention from The New York Times. France is one of the last remaining bulwarks of psychoanalysis, the theory and therapy devised by Sigmund Freud and further developed by his countless acolytes.
Together with CSI and the German Skeptics (GWUP), ECSO is organizing the 6th World Skeptics Congress, which takes place from May 18-20th, 2012, in Berlin, Germany. The main topics of the congress are creationism, alternative medicine, risk assessment, psychology as well as (pseudo-)science in society. We are proud to welcome many internationally renowned speakers, including James "The Amazing" Randi.
The full programme and other information can be found at www.worldskeptics.org. Please register soon! We look forward to meeting you in Berlin.
The Council of Europe has published a report on wireless communication as a health hazard. The report is an example of bad science and how irresponsible recommendations are being issued from official sources in Europe.
