This comment puzzled me.  Knowing many of the participants,
it would surprise me if  "sparks flew" (maybe, "wine flowed" but
that's another matter).   Then, it came to me: the "sparks flew"
comment was a play on words of the title of the conference:

A better and more accurate play on words, I suspect, might have been:
"Like a candle burning at both ends, the 'Rosa Luxemburg and the
critique of political economy' conference ended all too quickly."

In solidarity, Jerry
