Call for Papers
EPSA invites contributed papers and proposals for symposia. The conference has seven sections:
Contributed PapersWe invite submissions of both a short abstract (max. 1,000 characters) and an extended abstract (1000 words) through our automatic submission system by 1 March, 2015. To submit, please prepare your abstracts for blind review, and save your extended abstract as a PDF file. Then follow the link to our Conference System. Please note that first time users have to register as users of EasyChair.
The allocated time for delivering contributed papers at the conference will be 30 minutes, including discussion. Accepted contributed papers may be posted as an EPSA15 Conference Paper at the PhilSci Archive prior to the meeting. A selection of accepted papers will appear in an edited volume by Springer.
We invite submissions of both a short abstract (max. 1,000 characters) and a full proposal through our automatic submission system by 5 January, 2015. To submit, please save the full proposal as a PDF file. Then follow the link to our Conference System. Please note that first time users have to register as users of EasyChair. The full proposal includes the number and title of the relevant section, the title of the proposed symposium, the contact details of the organizer(s) (who may or may not be a proposed speaker) and the names and short CVs (max. 1 page) of all speakers, a general description of the topic and its significance (up to 1,500 words), and titles and abstracts of all papers (up to 300 words for each paper).
Accepted symposia will be allocated 120 minutes, including discussion. They can have any format but the maximum number of speakers is 5. Symposium proposals that explore connections between different areas or research programs in philosophy of science or between philosophy of science and sciences are encouraged.
Symposium organizers will be informed of the Programme Committee’s decisions by the 15 February and hence prior to the deadline for submitting contributed papers (March 1, 2015). Symposium papers may be posted as an EPSA15 Conference Paper at the PhilSci Archive prior to the meeting. A selection of accepted papers will appear in an edited volume by Springer.
Poster SessionGiven the competition for the conference programme, an additional dedicated poster session will be reserved to contributed papers that could not be accepted for presentation for reasons of space although they were considered to be of high quality and of much relevance for the conference. Authors whose papers have been accepted for the poster session will be notified by 30 April, 2015.
No one will be permitted to present more than one paper (either a symposium paper or a contributed paper, including papers jointly authored with others) on the EPSA15 programme. Multiple papers by a single author will not be taken into consideration, and symposium participants may not be involved in more than one symposium proposal. Please note: in addition to being the single author or a co-author of either an accepted symposium paper or of an accepted contributed paper, one can also appear as a co-author in another accepted paper, provided that said person is not the first author of the co-authored paper. Only first authors of accepted papers will be allowed to present at EPSA15, in compliance with the rule above about multiple submissions.
EPSA Travel Grants for Graduate Students
EPSA will award five travel grants (maximally 500 EUR each) to graduate students who have been accepted to present a contributed paper, a contributed poster or a symposium paper at EPSA15 in Duesseldorf. More details on how to apply will be given in the notification of acceptance e-mail.
Please distribute this information as widely as possible.
