The Philosophy Program Committee encourages the submission of papers and symposium proposals.  Their selection will be based on quality and relevance to philosophy, psychology, and other sciences of the mind.  The aim of the committee is to present as balanced a program as the quality of submissions in each area permits.

Submissions should include a word count and an abstract of no more than 150 words.  Self-reference should be deleted to permit blind reviewing; authors should indicate their identity only on the cover letter that accompanies their submission.  All papers submitted and presented should employ gender-neutral language.  Please submit file as lastname.firstname.doc or lastname.firstname.rtf or lastname.firstname.pdf.


Papers, along with the Abstract Submission Form on the website, should be submitted electronically to:

Certain papers may be selected for commentary depending on overall programmatic considerations.  People who wish to comment on a paper or to chair a session may volunteer by sending a short version of their curriculum vitae directly to the program chairperson at the above address.

Please specify ‘SSPP Submission' in the subject line.  If the paper is being submitted in consideration of a Graduate Student Travel Award, please specify ‘SSPP Submisson– GSTA.’  If the paper should be considered for the Griffith prize, please specify ‘SSPP submission - Griffith.’
