In the body of your email, please indicate your name, email address, phone number, and institutional affiliation (if any). If you wish your paper to be considered for a prize (see below), please note whether you are an untenured faculty member, graduate student, or undergraduate.

Part of the Charlotte (NC) metropolitan area, Rock Hill sits approximately 26 miles south of Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT), 80 miles east of Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSO), and 80 miles north of Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE).
Panels and Workshops Panel and workshop proposals on any topic in philosophy, including its pedagogy, are welcome. Proposals should specify issues to be discussed, format (including time to be allotted), and names of presenters, and should include brief abstracts of presentations.
