Guidelines for Authors

Submissions will be blind-refereed and selected on the basis of quality and philosophical significance.

Contributed papers will be scheduled for a 30 minutes presentation + 10 minutes discussion.

Abstracts must be written in English and be prepared for blind review, with all self-reference and personal data suppressed. Abstracts should indicate the title of the paper and the parallel session for which it is submitted or a clear reference to the symposium. Please select parallel sessions or symposium among the conference topics.

Please submit an abstract of 300 words, and a long abstract of no more than 1000 words (references included).

Long abstracts should not only contain the position defended or the issue discussed, but also indicate the outline of the argument.

  • Submission is made through the EasyChair website (see Guidelines below)*.
  • Short abstracts will be inserted in the EasyChair submission page in text format.
  • Long abstracts will be uploaded as files in either .doc or .pdf format.

Please select only one parallel session during submission.

For contributions to symposia, use regular EasyChair, select the symposium of your interest among the conference topics on Easychair, and put the title of the symposium in the heading of the abstract.


Notification of acceptance is expected by July 10th
