The Virginia Philosophical Association will meet for its annual conference on October 25-26 at Virginia Wesleyan University.

We welcome submissions in any area of philosophy from philosophers and graduate students. Papers should be no longer than 4,500 words. Please prepare the paper for blind review and include a brief abstract. Email papers to Charles Repp,, with 'VPA Submission' in the subject line. Commentators will be solicited from those whose papers are not selected.  

The conference will include submitted presentations (with commentators) from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. The conference also includes a brief business meeting and two invited talks, one of which takes place at the end of the Friday night meal. The meeting concludes with the humorously wrought but seriously intended "Resolution of Thanks" to the host institution.

The VPA charges no dues or registration fees for the meeting and the host institution graciously provides an evening meal.

  • All faculty or graduate students in philosophy at a Virginia college or university (or those with equivalent competence and interest in philosophy) are invited to submit papers to the conference, participate in the conference, and vote on officers.
  • Philosophers from other states are also welcome to submit papers to the conference and participate in the conference.
  • All philosophy undergrads, other undergrads, and community members are welcome to participate
