Papers must have philosophical content, but there are no specific restrictions on subject matter within the arena of philosophical discussion itself. However, we especially encourage papers from diverse perspectives.
We are excited to announce, for the second year in a row, a $500 prize for the best paper. The student with the best paper will also be featured as the student keynote speaker. Additionally, this year we will hold a lottery to cover airfare and hotel expenses for one student.
All accepted papers will automatically be entered into the lottery. Electronic submissions (.doc or .pdf) are required and should be sent as an attachment to Liz Goodnick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submissions should include both the paper and an abstract of 100-200 words. Papers should be approximately 2500 words (8-10 pages) and prepared for anonymous review.
Please include the following in the body of the email: 1. Paper title 2. Word count 3. Author’s name 4. Institutional affiliation (if any) 5. Email address 6. Telephone number 7. Will you need a smart classroom to present your paper?
Papers that do not include the above will not be considered. No more than one paper by the same author will be considered.
Submission deadline: Monday, February 19th, 2018
Papers will be reviewed by the conference planning committee. Notifications will be made via email by March 5th, 2018. Submissions whose authors cannot be contacted will be rejected.
Each paper will have a commentator. Those interested in providing brief comments of approximately 5-7 minutes should email Liz Goodnick at email@example.com by February 19th stating your availability and interest. Please indicate whether you would like to be a commentator should your paper not be accepted.
