The submitted abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words. All submissions are to be prepared for a double-blind review. Please submit your abstract with a short biographical note attached in a separate document. All submissions should be suitable for presentation of approximately 20 minutes in length. After each presentation, speakers will have 10 minutes for Q&A. Please note that selected papers of the conference will be published in a thematic issue of Balkan Journal of Philosophy, in 2025.
