Any paper that relates to the theme of ethics in action, broadly construed, will be considered.

This year’s conference will also feature a special stream for presentations related to the topic of “The Crisis of American Democracy.” 
We hope to have an interdisciplinary event and welcome submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, and professional philosophers, as well as from a range of fields including philosophy, law, public policy, business, medicine, history, religious studies, political science, social science, or related fields. Submissions from active scientists, researchers, or practitioners are also welcome, particularly insofar as those presentations could complement the theme of the conference. We also especially welcome proposals from women and minorities, and are committed to making this year’s conference inclusive and welcoming to all.
