The programme has a different format and aim from the usual. The aim is to give an overview of current research focusing on the work of leading researchers and postgraduate students (at the universities of Canterbury, Edinburgh, Gothenburg, Greenwich, Northampton, and Northumbria).  The programme also highlights the launch of the SPR’s work on spontaneous cases including the new book, Using Equipment: Guidance Notes for Investigators of Apparitions, Hauntings, Poltergeists and Similar Phenomena.

Booking for "Sunday only" is still available FOR SPR MEMBERS, SPR STUDENT MEMBERS and NON-MEMBERS in the booking form.

NOTE THAT ALL TIMES ARE BRITISH SUMMER TIME. Recordings of all sessions will be available after the event, free of charge to all registered delegates.  So, if you are unable to join us for all of the sessions due to your time zone, you will be able to watch the recordings afterwards. The recordings will also be available for purchase separately, but the cost for all of the recordings will be higher than the cost of registration.
