SPARC is Salford's annual conference for postgraduate researchers from all disciplines.

Event details

The Salford Postgraduate Annual Research Conference (SPARC) is a forum for developing research, offering a space for postgraduate researchers from all disciplines to exchange ideas. The focus of this year’s conference is on the University’s 50th Anniversary celebrations with the strapline ‘Retrospect and Prospects’, so we particularly welcome proposals around the theme of looking both forward and back.

In addition to student presentations, posters and the Salford final of the 3 Minute Thesis competition, we will be welcoming 3 very different keynote speakers: Prof David Brettle, Geoff Thompson MBE and Dr Kirsty Fairclough.
