Cambridge University is hosting the Visions of Enchantment Conference on March 17-18, 2014.

I am minded to attend, but it may not be possible.

One of the sponsors is Treadwells who have regular talks on alchemy and related subjects. Here's one in March:

I met Paul Cowlan at the Alchemy conference in El Escorial in 2008. He was very entertaining. I am sure Rafal, who was also there, will remember Paul.

I did manage to attend the conference. There were a handful of talks that I found interesting. Many of the papers were rather too postmodern for me - some even adopting the complex linguistics of Michel Foucault. I prefer more straightforward expositions.
