Conference & Publication Calls for Papers

Call For Papers
 

2008 Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and The Mind Association

Deadline: February 01, 2008

CALL FOR PAPERS

2008 JOINT SESSION OF THE ARISTOTELIAN SOCIETY AND THE MIND ASSOCIATION, UNIVERSITY OF ABERDEEN, 11TH -13TH JULY -- OPEN SESSIONS

A number of parallel sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons will be available for the presentation of papers not previously published. There will be a considerable number of these sessions available, allowing room for many submissions to be included. The intention is to accommodate all philosophical material suitable for presentation to a professional audience, so far as time and space in the programme allow, and not to operate a selective policy. Each presentation should last no more than 20 minutes, so that a further 10-15 minutes may be allowed for discussion. Presented papers should aim to introduce material involving recent research. There are no restrictions on the areas of philosophy which papers may address. Philosophers whose papers are included in this part of the programme must be or become subscribing members of one of the organising societies.

Those wishing to make a presentation should submit a copy of their paper (no more than 2000 words), together with a 250-word abstract, via the Joint Session website: www.abdn.ac.uk/jointsession2008 by 1st February 2008. This facility will be in operation from December. The organizers can be contacted by email on js@abdn.ac.uk. Decisions on whether papers have been accepted will be made by the end of March 2008. Authors wishing for an earlier response should submit papers as early as possible.

Papers accepted for the Open Sessions will not be published in the Supplementary Volume of the Aristotelian Society (unlike papers invited for the plenary programme of the conference); and expenses will not be paid.

POSTGRADUATE SESSIONS

Two parallel sessions on the Saturday afternoon will be devoted to short presentations by graduate students (or those who have recently obtained a postgraduate degree). Each student should speak for 20 minutes, allowing 10 minutes for discussion.

Students wishing to participate should send their paper, preferably by attachment in Word 98 or higher, otherwise in two hard copies, by 1st February 2008 to: The Executive Secretary, The Aristotelian Society, Room 281, Stewart House, Russell Square, London WC1B 5DN. Email: mail@aristoteliansociety.org.uk.

The paper should be about 2000 words but no more than 2500 words, including notes and bibliography, and should begin with a brief abstract. It should be typewritten in 12-point text, single-spaced throughout (i.e. including references and quotations), on one side of white A4 paper. All pages should be numbered and have margins of 1 inch or more. Papers containing symbols liable to distortion in transmission should be submitted as hard copies; otherwise electronic copy is welcome.

Please ensure that there are no self-identifying references in the text. Submissions should be accompanied by a separate page containing the title of the paper, the name of the author, institution and status, and email and postal addresses. Authors are advised to consult supervisors about what may be suitable for presentation to a largely professional audience. Given the tight word-limit, they are advised to give as much space as they can to the statement of their own ideas. The papers will be sent to referees, and a maximum of eight will be selected for presentation at the Joint Session.

The programme will be settled in May 2008.

The selected authors will have their conference fee and accommodation expenses (but not their travel costs) paid by the Mind Association and the Aristotelian Society. Some papers may subsequently be considered for publication in the Proceedings of the Aristotelian Society.

Nobody should submit a paper for both the Postgraduate and the Open Sessions, and only one paper may be submitted per individual. However, graduate students whose submission for the Postgraduate Sessions is unsuccessful may subsequently be advised that their paper has been accepted for the Open Sessions. Conference costs will not be paid by the organisers.
