The Philosophy Program Committee encourages the submission of single-authored papers as well as symposium proposals. 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 of the program committee 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).

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. Proposals for symposia must include a 750 word proposal for the symposium, a list of presenters and affiliations, and a 300 word abstract for each proposed paper. All papers and proposal must employ gender-neutral language; and all submissions must be made using our online submission system at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sspp2017
