Online registration is now open. For details of the conference see SPR 2023 Annual Conference
Submissions of papers for presentation are invited now. The deadline for submissions is now 12th September 2023.
Any person may submit a paper for presentation at the conference and papers may be on any aspect of parapsychology or psychical research. The conference welcomes papers covering laboratory testing, spontaneous cases and the analysis of contemporary or historic cases, from any scientific or academic perspective. As always, the conference hopes to reflect a wide range of disciplines and perspectives in psychical research and particularly welcomes papers detailing recent research and new analysis of data and results.
The usual time allocated for each paper, including discussion, will be 30 minutes. Speakers should aim to make papers readily understandable to a non-specialist audience and they should not simply read aloud an article intended for publication. There will be no simultaneous sessions. Since the conference is a residential one, there will be ample opportunity for informal contact between participants attending the live event. Speakers will, preferably, be in the room, not presenting via Zoom.
The Programme Committee would welcome suggestions for symposia or round-table discussions that could take place outside the time reserved for the presentation of papers.
Summaries of proposed papers should reach the Programme Committee by 10th September 2023. These summaries should be single-spaced, single-sided and have a length of 500 to 1000 words (at most two pages). Electronic submissions are preferred — please use [email protected] for submissions and put “CONFERENCE ABSTRACT SUBMISSION” in the subject of the message.
The full conference programme will be distributed to all members; it will also be available from the SPR office and on our website.
Please note that the conference schedule is 9.30 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on both Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th November. Accommodation and all meals will be available. For prices and registration, see SPR 2023 Annual Conference.
Woodland Grange is an award-winning residential conference venue and hotel, set in 16 acres of beautiful gardens in the heart of the Midlands. Whilst offering a quiet, retreat-style setting, the venue is located at the heart of the motorway network, with the M40, M42, M6 and M69 all within a 20-minute drive.
The venue can turn from a professional business environment during the day, to a more informal setting at night. With a range of outside areas, an on-site restaurant, bar, games room and gym, it’s the ultimate venue to balance both work and relaxation.
