The 82nd Worldcon, Glasgow 2024 AKA Interthingy 3, will be held Thursday, August 8, to Monday, August 12, 2024, at the Scottish Events Campus in Glasgow, Scotland. It is the eighth U.K. Worldcon and third in Glasgow.

GoHs: Chris Baker (aka Fangorn), Claire Brialey, Mark Plummer, Ken MacLeod, Nnedi Okorafor and Terri Windling. Special guests are T. L. Huchu, Tanya DePass, Catherine Heymans, Samantha Béart, and Three Black Halflings.

The Worldcon bid of the same name started in 2015 as UK in 2024, a bid to hold the 2024 Worldcon somewhere in the UK. The bid was chaired by Esther MacCallum-Stewart, who is also chair of the con.

In 2019, the bid decided that the venue would be the SECC conference centre in Glasgow, where Intersection and Interaction were held, and became Glasgow 2024. It was unopposed in the 2024 Site Selection at Chicon 8 in 2022.

The con will host the 2026 Worldcon Site Selection and the 2024 Hugos.
