The Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology announces its 114th Annual Meeting to be held in Louisville, Kentucky from March 9 through March 11, 2023. SSPP meetings feature concurrent programs in Philosophy and Psychology, as well as plenary sessions jointly sponsored by the Philosophy and Psychology Program Committees. The deadline for all philosophy submissions is October 15, 2022. 

The Philosophy Program Committee encourages the submission of individual papers or symposium proposals:

  • Paper submissions exceeding 3,000 words will not be considered. Each paper submission must include a word count and abstract of no more than 150 words. Self-reference should be deleted to permit anonymous review. Papers will be assigned a commentator. Presentations should be 20-25 minutes, comments no more than 10 minutes, leaving around 10-15 minutes for Q&A.

  • Proposals for symposia must include a 750 word proposal for the symposium, a list of 3, 4 or 5  presenters and affiliations, including a chair for the session,  and a short abstract (around 150 words) for each proposed paper. Symposia are 2 hours and 25 minutes divided among the speakers.

Selection will be based on quality, relevance to issues at the intersection of Philosophy and Psychology (as well as other sciences of the mind), and program considerations. The aim is to present a program that is as balanced as the quality of submissions in each area will allow (though papers addressing issues of gender, race, sexuality, bias, and social exclusion are especially encouraged). All papers and proposals must employ gender-neutral language. Authors must indicate whether they wish to be considered for a Graduate Student Travel Award or the Griffith Prize (for details and eligibility see:

From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, SSPP has been committed to responding quickly to medical evidence to support the safety of our membership. As we hold our second in-person conference since 2020, we will consider CDC guidelines and remain vigilant about establishing best practices for a safe meeting. We recommend that all participants are up-to-date on vaccinations, and recommend masking at the conference venue where possible. Required masking is a possible best practice that may be implemented for the meeting, if warranted by the situation in March 2023.
