General Aim:
The aim of the European Society for Philosophy & Psychology is ‘to
promote interaction between philosophers and psychologists on issues of
common concern’. Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer
scientists and biologists are encouraged to report experimental,
theoretical and clinical work that they judge to have philosophical
significance; and philosophers are encouraged to engage with the
fundamental issues addressed by and arising out of such work. In recent
years ESPP sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, theory
of mind, attention, joint attention, reference, problems of
consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early
numerical cognition, infants’ understanding of intentionality, memory
and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the semantics/pragmatics
distinction, minimalism in linguistic theory, reasoning, vagueness,
mental causation, action and agency, thought without language,
externalism, hypnosis, and the interpretation of neuropsychological

The Society invites submitted symposia, papers and posters for this
meeting. Submissions are refereed and selected on the basis of quality
and relevance to psychologists, philosophers and linguists.

Symposia are allocated a two-hour slot and consist of a set of linked
papers on a common theme. Symposia should typically include perspectives
from at least two different disciplines (e.g., philosophy and
linguistics). Symposia organisers should submit an outline of the
symposium along with a list of speakers and abstracts as a single
document. Please do not submit more than one PDF file per symposium.

Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced
pages) for a total 30 minute session. Submissions may consist of a 500-
word abstract, though in the case of philosophical submissions a full
paper is preferred.

A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word

When submitting your paper or poster online, please indicate which is
the primary discipline of your paper (philosophy, psychology, or
linguistics) and whether your submission is intended as a paper or a
poster. Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as a
poster if space constraints prevent acceptance as a paper or if the
submission is thought more suitable for presentation as a poster. If you
would like us to consider your paper as a poster in this way please
select the relevant ‘paper or poster’ option.

All paper and poster submissions (whether abstracts or full papers)
should be in PDF-format and should be properly anonymized in order to
allow for blind refereeing.

of charge.)
