Update on Hotel Bookings
Unfortunately, we are not able to open hotel bookings for Satellite 7 just yet. The hotel are introducing some new Covid-related clauses to all contracts. Although we do not expect these to have any material impact on Satellite 7, we feel that it is only responsible for the Committee to see these new clauses before we open booking to members. Once we have confirmed that all is well, we shall open hotel bookings immediately. We hope this will be in the next few days.
At that time, we shall email the booking details to all members, as well as making announcements on all our social media platforms.
We apologise for this frustrating delay and any inconvenience it may be causing.

Satellite 7 Update
Yesterday the Scottish Government announced the easing of most Covid restrictions in Scotland. So we have increasing confidence of running Satellite 7. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Glasgow in May!
We have contacted the Crowne Plaza about re-opening hotel bookings and will email all members about this as soon as details are available. We expect this to be in early February.
Programme development is recommencing. Those of you who already volunteered will receive an email in the next few weeks to reconfirm what you would like to contribute. New volunteers are welcome!
We plan to open the Call for submissions to the second volume of the Journal of pSeudoscience soon. pSubmission guideline are available here

Ed Buckley R.I.P.
We are really saddened to hear of the death of Ed Buckley. As well as being a long-time Glasgow fan and wonderful artist, Ed was a Satellite Stalwart – attending and contributing to the programme at every Satellite convention to date – and of course our Guest of Honour at Satellite 5. He will be hugely missed.
