Vincent Docherty

Vince Docherty is an active fan and con-runner, originally from Glasgow, who has attended 100+ cons in over a dozen countries across four continents and chaired several cons including co-chairing the Worldcon in 1995 & 2005. He was interested in SF, Space and Science almost from birth, which he blames on the moon-race, Doctor Who and 'Thunderbirds' and he retains a love of Hard SF to this day. He did research in Quantum Chemistry and his day job in the energy industry has taken him from the UK, then Oman and currently The Hague in The Netherlands. He remains an active con-runner, including several current Worldcons and bids, and was the 2010 and 2011 Hugo Award administrator, although he considers he has largely 'hung up his kilt' in regard to chairing Worldcons! He fulfilled a long-held dream to have a symphony orchestra at a con in the music programme at the 2009 Eastercon LX! His contributions were recognised as Fan Guest of Honour at the 2011 British National Convention.
