Papers in any area of philosophy are welcome; papers on the work of our keynote speaker, Michael Huemer, are especially encouraged.

Papers must be prepared for anonymous review and should not exceed 3000 words in length. Abstracts, also required, should not exceed 150 words.

Name, affiliation, contact information, title of paper, and abstract should be included in the body of the email to act as a contact information sheet.

Submission deadline is July 18, 2022. Save your document as a doc/x, rtf, or pdf file and submit as an email attachment to Jonelle DePetro at [email protected]

Suggestions for commentators and session chairs, including self-nominations, are welcome and encouraged.


We also host an Undergraduate Student Essay Contest with a prize of $100 and the opportunity for the winner to present their paper at the conference. 

Essays in any area of philosophy are welcome. Students submitting must be undergraduates attending a university or college in Illinois. By submitting, the winner agrees to present their paper at the 2022 IPA Conference.

The essay must not exceed 3000 words in length (not counting bibliography and notes). All self-identifying references (including institution-identifying references) should be removed from the essay itself. 

Name, institution, word count, and contact information should appear on a separate cover page and in the body of the submission email. The title of the essay should appear on both the cover sheet and on the essay.

Submission deadline is September 30, 2022. Save your documents as doc/x, rtf, or pdf files and submit as email attachments to Jonelle DePetro at [email protected]
