European Philosophical Society for the Study of Emotions (EPSSE) Annual Conference 2024, Lisbon


We are delighted to announce that our 11th EPSSE Annual Conference will be co-hosted in Lisbon by the University of Lisbon and NOVA University Lisbon on 19th - 21st June 2024. EPSSE’s inaugural meeting was held in Lisbon, so it feels very fitting to return there for the first meeting of our second decade(!) as a society.

A huge thank you to our local organisers Laura Silva, Dina Mendonca, and Ricardo Santos for agreeing to host us and helping us put together the conference!


Call for Abstracts for EPSSE 2024


The call for abstracts for our 2024 annual conference is now open! We invite submissions on the philosophy of emotions, widely construed, for:

  • Individual papers (up to 500 words)

  • Group panel sessions (a summary of the panel up to 250 words and abstracts for each speaker up to 500 words)

  • Book symposia (a summary of the book symposia up to 500 words and a list of proposed commentators)

  • Any more creative options that you have in mind (we recommend that you get in touch with us to discuss any alternative formats that you are interested in proposing)

Please prepare abstracts for anonymous review in word or PDF form.

Submissions should be sent to: [email protected]. Please use the following title in the subject line of your email: “Abstract submission EPSSE 2024”.

In order to allow as many speakers as possible to have a slot, we ask our members to only submit once to the conference (with the exception of participating as a commentator in a book symposium, which you can do alongside submitting an abstract for a presentation or participating in a group panel).
