Call for Papers: Society for Philosophy and Psychology


Society for Philosophy and Psychology


36th Annual Meeting

June 9-12, 2010

Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon.

Submission Deadline: February 1, 2010.

Submissions should be tailored to one of the following three presentation types:

  1. 45 Minute Contributed Sessions with Commentators: Suitable for longer papers featuring empirical research or sustained arguments on complex issues. Papers must not exceed a length of 3,500 words and should be accompanied by an abstract (of less than 300 words).
  2. 15 Minute “Cutting Edge” Research Presentations: Suitable for brief presentations of exciting new empirical research or works in progress. For this category, an abstract of not more than 1,500 words should be submitted.
  3. Poster only presentations: Best for those who prefer the poster presentation format, and can communicate the substance and significance of their work in a short abstract. For this category, an abstract of not more than 750 words should be submitted.

Submssions in the first two categories that are not accepted for oral presentation will automatically be considered for presentation as posters, unless the author stipulates otherwise.

Papers and abstracts must be written in a format appropriate for anonymous review and employ gender-neutral language. Individual authors may submit only one paper or abstract as first author, though they may be co-authors on other submissions.

All submissions will be made using our online submission system, which will open December 1, 2009. Check back here for details.

Invited Speakers for the 2010 SPP meeting include: Liane Gabora, Joshua Greene, John-Dylan Haynes, Scott Barry Kaufman, Katherine Kinzler, Edouard Machery, Casey O’Callaghan, Elliot Paul, Brian Scholl, Linda Skitka, Keith Stanovich, and Stephen Stich.

There will also be a Presidential Address by Betram Malle.

Symposia topics will include: The Neuroscience of Lying, Cognizing Human Groups, Creativity & Imagination, and Object Perception.

This year’s conference will be preceded on June 9th by a workshop in Moral Psychology. More details on the worshop will be posted soon.
