The Ninth Principia International Symposium will be held in  Florianopolis, Brazil, from August 17th to 20th, 2015, focusing on possible worlds and their applications in philosophy and the sciences. Possible worlds have been widely used in many areas of philosophy, in particular, in metaphysics, philosophy of language, philosophy of physics, and philosophical logic. We welcome contributions that address any aspect of the significance of possible worlds or that examine critically their use in philosophy or in the interpretation of the sciences. 

Submission format

Contributed papers to the symposium can be written in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish. An extended abstract (about 500 words, in any of these languages) of the paper must be submitted by March 15, 2015 to the organizing committee. Submissions must be made by e-mail only to the following address: [email protected].

Abstracts must give enough detail to allow the scientific committee to assess the merits of the work. Please, include an identification page with the author's name, e-mail, his/her  professionalcategory (professor, associate professor, researcher, or  student), and full institutional address.

Papers submitted by undergraduate students, even if in collaboration  with their supervisors or other professionals, will not be accepted.
