I’m very pleased indeed to share this Call for Papers for a conference on the metaphysics of modality and related matters (including methodology of metaphysics) in Bratislava, featuring Takashi Yagisawa and yours truly as keynote speakers. The conference is organized by the Slovak Metaphysical Society. This will be the second year of the event. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend this year’s installation, but I hear that it was a great success. The previous event’s keynotes were John Divers and Franz Berto, and the submitted papers appear to have been of a very high quality.
So, I very much encourage you to submit your best short papers on relevant topics! Deadline for submissions is April 30, 2014. Conference website is here.
