Extended call for papers ESPP 2018 Rijeka

Call for papers:

The Society invites submitted symposia, papers and posters for this meeting. Submissions are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and relevance to psychologists, philosophers and linguists.

Symposia are allocated a two-hour slot and consist of a set of linked papers on a common theme. Symposia should typically include perspectives from at least two different disciplines (e.g., philosophy and linguistics). Symposia organizers should submit an outline of the symposium along with a list of speakers and abstracts as a single document. Please do not submit more than one PDF file per symposium.

Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced pages) for a total 30 minutes session. Submissions may consist of a 500-word abstract, though in the case of philosophical submissions a full paper is preferred.

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. If you would like us to consider your paper also as a poster in this way, please select the relevant ‘paper or poster’ option.

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.

The deadline for all submissions has been extended to April 15th (midnight, GMT), 2018.

Submissions should be made online via Easychair:
