Deadline for Submissions: December 5th, 2017

Notification of Acceptance: February 15th, 2018

Any paper that relates to the theme of ethics in theory and practice, broadly construed, will be considered. Topics might include, but are not limited to, interpersonal ethics, social ethics, ethics within and across disciplines and specialties, the intersection of ethics and politics, applied and professional ethics, metaethics, and ethical theory. In addition, there will be a specialty track at the conference dedicated to issues related to Hume and applied ethics. Participants in this track will have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in a forthcoming edited anthology on the topic.

We hope to have an interdisciplinary event and welcome submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, and professional philosophers, as well as from a range of fields including philosophy, law, public policy, business, medicine, history, religious studies, political science, social science, or related fields. Submissions from active scientists, researchers, or practitioners are also welcome, particularly insofar as those presentations could complement the ethics in theory and practice theme of the conference. We also especially welcome proposals from women and minorities, and are committed to making this year’s conference inclusive and welcoming to all.

**There will be a $100 prize for the best undergraduate paper.**

**There will be a $100 prize for the best graduate student paper.**

To submit a paper for consideration, please submit an extended abstract of up to 500 words. All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Please submit abstracts as .doc, .docx, or .pdf, at

Final papers should be suitable for a 20-30 minute presentation. Presentations should aim to be accessible and lively as part of constructive, collaborative, informal sessions.
