Call for papers

The Society invites submitted symposia, papers and posters for this meeting. Submissions are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and relevance to psychologists, philosophers and linguists.

Symposia

Symposia are allocated a two-hour slot and consist of a set of linked papers on a common theme. Symposia should typically include perspectives from at least two different disciplines (e.g., philosophy and linguistics). Symposia organizers should submit an outline of the symposium along with a list of speakers and abstracts as a single document. Please do not submit more than one PDF file per symposium.

Papers

Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced pages) for a total 30 minutes session. Submissions may consist of a 500-word abstract, though in the case of philosophical submissions a full paper is preferred.

poster

A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract.

When submitting your paper or poster online, please first indicate the primary discipline of your paper (philosophy, psychology, or linguistics) and whether your submission is intended as a paper or a poster.

Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as a poster if space constraints prevent acceptance as a paper or if the submission is thought more suitable for presentation as a poster. If you would like us to consider your paper also as a poster in this way, please select the relevant ‘paper or poster’ option.

file Format

All paper and poster submissions (whether abstracts or full papers) should be in .doc or PDF-format and should be properly anonymized in order to allow for blind refereeing.

Deadline

The deadline for all submissions has been extended to April 15th (midnight, GMT), 2018.

Submissions should be made online via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=espp2018

ESPP General Aim

https://korpora.zim.uni-duisburg-essen.de/espp/

The aim of the European Society for Philosophy & Psychology is ‘to promote interaction between philosophers and psychologists on issues of common concern’. Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists and biologists are encouraged to report experimental, theoretical and clinical work that they judge to have philosophical significance; and philosophers are encouraged to engage with the fundamental issues addressed by and arising out of such work. In recent years ESPP sessions have covered such topics as theory of mind, attention, reference, problems of consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early numerical cognition, spatial concepts, infants’ understanding of intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the semantics/pragmatics distinction, comparative cognition, minimalism in linguistic theory, reasoning, vagueness, mental causation, action and agency, thought without language, externalism, hypnosis, and the interpretation of neuropsychological results.
