Parapsychological Association Annual Convention
The Annual PA Convention is an multidisciplinary international gathering of scientists and scholars engaged in the study of psi or ('psychic') experiences, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, psychic healing, and precognition. The convention features three days of papers and posters presenting the latest academic research taking place in laboratories and research centers around the world. PA conventions are open to the public, and provide ample opportunities for attendees to discuss and exchange ideas.
This year, the convention will be held at L'Enclos Rey, a convent situated in the Parisian 15th sector, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower. The convent features a 6000 square metre garden within its walls, and can accommodate overnight guests at budget rates. With its urban location, there are many hotels, restaurants, and sight-seeing activities within walking distance of Enclos Rey.
Preceding the convention will be a public-friendly day of lectures hosted by the Institut Métapsychique International. This day, aimed at a general but sophisticated public, will touch on a number of themes, including the history of parapsychology, research, epistemological issues, and applications. A majority of the presentations will be in French. The IMI day will be followed by three days of PA convention activities in English.
