Call for papers

There is space for several submitted papers to be presented at the workshop. Submissions are welcome on any topics relevant to the workshop theme broadly construed. 

If you would like to present, submit an anonymised extended abstract of up to 1,000 words via the Easy Chair submission site (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hom1) by Monday 15 April. Please email Nick Jones separately if you would also like to be considered for an early-career or graduate bursary (see below).

The Higher-Order Metaphysics project will fund overnight accommodation in Birmingham and UK travel costs (standard class return rail, up to £90) for authors of selected papers. In the event of a budget surplus, we will aim to help with international travel costs too.
