Papers should be designed to be presentable within 20 minutes (for a total 30 minutes session). Submissions should consist of a long abstract of up to 1000 words (excluding bibliography). If required, an additional page of tables and/or graphs may be included.
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. 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.
Symposia are allocated a two-hour slot and consist of a set of four linked papers on a common theme or three linked papers with an introduction. Symposia should include perspectives from at least two of the three disciplines represented in the society (philosophy, psychology and linguistics). Submissions should be made by symposium organizers (not speakers).
When submitting a symposium proposal online, your submissions should include the following three elements in a single PDF: (1) A list of 3 or 4 speakers which indicates representation of at least two disciplines (individual speakers may also represent multiple disciplines). (2) A general abstract of up to 500 words, laying out the topics to be addressed and indicating connections among the talks (3) Individual abstracts of up to 500 words and provisional titles for each talk. Please do not submit more than one PDF file per symposium. General Aim
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.
