Philosophy of Biology at the Mountains (POBAM) 2020, Workshop CFA

The POBAM Workshop showcases new work in the philosophy of biology. Submissions can be on any topic in the philosophy of biology or biology-oriented philosophy of science, though priority will be given to novel and innovative work. Interdisciplinary projects bridging philosophy and biology are highly encouraged.

For 2020, participants may submit proposals for either a full-length talk (30 minutes + 30 minutes Q&A) or a 5-minute lightning talk + poster. The latter option includes a poster display as well as a chance to pitch your project to all POBAM participants in a special “POBAM Poster Pitch” session, which will be held at the beginning of the workshop.

Abstract submissions may be up to 500 words and must be prepared for blind review. Please indicate in your submission whether you are applying for a full-length talk or a lightning talk + poster, and whether you wish to be considered for a lightning talk + poster if you are not accepted for a full-length talk.

Please submit your abstracts through EasyChair ( The deadline for submission is Friday, January 31.
