We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Mind, Language, and Metaphysics (MLM) Graduate Conference, to be held on the 30th  June and 1st July 2020 at Durham University (UK).

The keynote speakers for this year's edition will be: 

Franz Berto (St. Andrews)

Jessica Leech (KCL)

Anna-Sofia Maurin (Gothenburg)

The central aim of MLM Graduate Conference is to provide a forum for graduate students and early career researchers (within five years of completion of their PhD) to present their work and interact with each other in a friendly and inclusive environment.

This year the conference will focus in particular on Metaphysics. We welcome applications that make an original contribution to any topic in metaphysics and closely related areas, broadly in the analytic tradition.

The official conference language is English; contributions in other languages will not be considered. The abstract should not contain any identifying information.

Each contributed speaker will have 40 minutes to present her paper,
followed by 15 minutes of discussion. There will be no parallel sessions.


We invite submissions in the form of an abstract (*circa 600 words*). Please submit abstracts via easychair:


The deadline for submissions is *15th March (5 pm, GMT)*

The conference is held within the framework of Durham University’s MLM Research Cluster. If you
have any questions regarding our conference, please contact the organisers:
