The Joy of Skepticism

18th European SKeptics Congress 2019

Every other year skeptics from all over Europe come together to meet at a Skeptics Congress. They listen to talks about a variety of subjects, participate in debates, exchange experiences with colleagues from abroad, while having a great time together. This year we are meeting in Ghent, one of the great historical cities of Belgium, home to one of its main universities, with a preprogram Skeptics in the Pub event in the center of Brussels. Come and join us for 3-4 days of fun and learning, and don’t forget to sample Belgium’s fine beers and chocolates while you’re here.
