PLM is a European network of centers devoted to the Philosophy of Language and Mind and organizes a biennial international conference series with leading experts on the field. 

The conference welcomes the submission of abstracts in the areas of

  • philosophy of language (widely construed, including philosophical logic and philosophy of linguistics) and
  • philosophy of mind (including philosophy of psychology and cognitive science).

Abstracts accepted as talks will be allocated 40 minutes, including 10 minutes of discussion. In addition, we will allow for poster presentations. Selected papers from all three previous PLM conferences have been published in special issues of Synthese or Review of Philosophy and Psychology. A similar special issue with selected papers is intended for PLM4.
