The Philosophy Program Committee encourages the submission of single­ authored papers as well as symposium proposals. Selection will be based on quality, relevance to issues at the intersection of Philosophy and Psychology  (as well as other sciences of the mind), and program considerations­­.

The aim of the program committee is to present a program that is as balanced as the quality of submissions in each area will allow (though papers addressing issues of gender, race, sexuality, bias, and social exclusion are especially encouraged).

Paper submissions exceeding 3,000 words will not be considered. Each paper submission must include a word count  and abstract of no more than 150 words. Self­-reference should be deleted to permit anonymous review. Proposals for symposia must include a 750 word proposal for the symposium, a list of presenters and affiliations, and a 300 word abstract for each proposed paper. All papers and proposal must employ gender­-neutral language; and all submissions                       must be made using our online submission system at:
Under the Keywords section, in addition to descriptions of the submission, please include any of the following that are applicable: To volunteer to be a session chair: ‘Chair.’ To comment on a paper: ‘Comment.’ To be considered for a Graduate Student Travel Award: ‘GSTA.’ To be considered for the Griffith Prize: ‘Griffith.’ For details and eligibility see:

  1. There were a couple of typos in the version that was posted here. Sorry about the year (gah! That says something about how far behind I am on various projects). They have been fixed in the posted CFP which can be found here:

    Sorry for the confusion! And thanks Anne and Samantha for the kind words!

  2. I would like to make two brief additions to the program, in light of mistakes that I have made in the CFP.

    1. I should have said “The aim of the program committee is to present a program that is as balanced as the quality of submissions in each area will allow (though papers addressing issues of gender, race, sexuality, bias, disability and social exclusion are especially encouraged).” My failure to include disability in my initial list was unintentional, unreflective, and deeply unfortunate. I take full responsibility for that, and I am genuinely sorry for the mistake.

    2. I would also like to note that the the SSPP is meeting in a historic hotel, which has some areas that cannot be changed to accommodate persons with the relevant types of differing abilities. Fortunately, all of our sessions will be located on the Mezzanine level of the hotel, which is assessable by way of an elevator from the lobby. If anyone else has further concerns about accessibility, or needs other accommodations, I would ask them to get in touch with me and I will do my best to find out what resources can be made available.
