Papers must have philosophical content, but there are no specific restrictions on subject matter within the arena of philosophical discussion itself.

DWe especially encourage papers from diverse perspectives.

We are excited to announce, for the 5th year in a row, a $500 prize for the best paper, which will also serve as the student keynote.

Electronic submissions (.doc or pdf) are required and should be sent as an attachment to Liz Goodnick at

Submissions should include both the paper and an abstract of 100-200 words in one document.

Papers should be approximately 2500 words (8-10 pages) and prepared for anonymous review (do not include your name or any identifying information on the attachment).

Please include the following in the body of the email:

1. Paper Title

2. Word Count

3. Author's/Authors' name(s)

4. Institutional Affiliation (if any)

5. Email Address

Papers that do not include the above will not be considered. No more than one paper by the same author will be considered, but co-authored papers are encouraged.


Papers will be reviewed by the conference planning committee. Notification of acceptance will be made via email by February 15, 2020. Submissions whose authors cannot be contacted through email 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 by February 10, stating your availability and areas of interest.
