This one is for grad students. The area is pretty broad, but I suspect that many submissions will reflect the (excellent!) work of the keynote speakers: Tim Crane, Thomas Hofweber, and Anna-Sara Malmgren. They’re asking for extended abstracts by September 1. I know one of the organising groups, ‘Understanding and the A Priori’ quite well as I spent over a week in Cologne at a couple of their previous conferences a few years ago. It’s a good group and since the conference is taking place at Cologne, I expect it to be a great opportunity for grad students working in core areas of analytic philosophy! Note that accommodation costs for speakers are covered.
We invite graduate students to submit abstracts on the philosophy of language, logic and mind, as well as on metaphysics and epistemology for presentation at the LEMMing Graduate Conference, jointly organized by the research groups Understanding and the A Priori (Cologne), Formal Epistemology (Konstanz), Phlox (Hamburg) and Nominalizations (Hamburg).
The graduate conference will take place from November 29 to December 1, 2012 at the University of Cologne (Germany). Keynote speakers will be
(1) Tim Crane (University of Cambridge)
(2) Thomas Hofweber (University of North Carolina)
(2) Anna-Sara Malmgren (Stanford University)
The material must be suitable for a presentation of no more than 45 minutes. Nine submissions will be selected for presentation. All presentations will be followed by a 10-minute comment by a postdoc affiliated with the research groups.
The deadline for submission is September 1, 2012.
The costs for accommodation (but not for travel) for the accepted graduate speakers will be covered.
Applicants should send the following documents for blind review:
(1) A separate cover page including: author’s name, title of paper, institutional affiliation, contact information and specification of the area(s) to which the paper is related (possible areas are: Language, Logic, Epistemology, Mind, Metaphysics);
(2) A substantial abstract of the presentation no longer than 1’500 words, excluding title and references, with no information identifying the author or the author’s institutional affiliation.
The documents should be sent as email attachments in *.pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use ‘Graduate Conference’ as subject line. Receipt of submissions will be confirmed by email.
Applicants must be graduate students by September 1, 2012. Please note that we do not accept more than one submission per person.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by October 15, 2012.
