Call for Proposals

The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) seeks proposals for its 31st annual international conference to be held at the Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio on 24-27 February 2022.  

APPE is a multidisciplinary, international organization advancing scholarship, education, and practice in practical and professional ethics. We facilitate and support scholarly and professional collaborations among teachers, scientists, business practitioners, engineers, government officials, researchers, the media, and all professionals concerned with the practical application of ethics and values.

We invite individuals from every discipline and profession interested in advancing scholarship, teaching and a general understanding of applied ethics to submit proposals based on their work. Our meeting will have sessions in many discipline areas including business, engineering, government, law, media, and science, and on a wide variety of subject areas such as agricultural and environmental ethics, behavioral ethics, bioethics, business ethics, compliance, education, media ethics, and the ethics of technology and artificial intelligence. Proposals can be on ethical issues within or cutting across disciplines and professions.

In addition to papers and sessions on topics of general interest in applied and professional ethics, APPE particularly encourages submissions in the following special interest areas:

  • Agricultural & Environmental Ethics
  • Behavioral Ethics
  • Bioethics, Health & Medical Ethics
  • Business Ethics
  • Education Ethics
  • Engineering, Science, Technology and Artificial Intelligence Ethics 
  • Law, Government & Military Ethics
  • Media & Journalism Ethics
  • Moral Theory
  • Research Integrity
  • Social & Societal Ethics 

Early career scholars and submissions associated with current events and emerging topics are particularly encouraged.  

Submission Categories Include: 

  • Individual Presentations
  • Panel Discussions
  • Case Studies
  • Pedagogical Demonstrations
  • Posters
  • Pre-recorded Flash Presentations
  • Author Meets Critics
  • Breakfast with an Author
  • Paper competitions and Awards, including: Best Formal Paper by an Early Career Scholar ($500), Graduate Student ($500), and Undergraduate ($250), and the Clifford G. Christians Ethics Research Award ($250)

The conference will be held in-person in Cincinnati, but to help accommodate our international members and members encountering difficulty travelling, we are offering a limited opportunity for fully synchronous virtual presentations. When submitting, please indicate whether you want your proposal considered for one of these openings, although we cannot guarantee that it will receive it. 

Generally, no more than one individual presentation per person will be accepted. There is no limit to participation in co-authored presentations and panels.

Complete Submission Guidelines & Instructions are available via APPE's website, at

Submission Deadline Extended!: All submissions are due Monday, November 8, 2021
