We invite submissions for paper presentations on any topic pertaining to experimental philosophy. Submissions can report new experimental results or contribute to broader philosophical or methodological debates over existing or possible results. Both XPhi-friendly and XPhi-critical papers are welcomed. We prefer to receive complete papers, but we will also accept extended abstracts. Participants who give paper presentations will be given 50 minute sessions within which to present their research and to respond to questions. Speakers are encouraged to allow at least 15 min. for Q&A. Speakers are also strongly encouraged to talk through their papers rather than read them verbatim.
We invite submissions for poster presentations on any topic pertaining to experimental philosophy. For poster submissions, please submit an extended abstract. A poster session and hors d’oeuvres reception will take place on the evening of Fri., Sept. 9.
New Ideas Workshop
This year’s conference will feature a half-day workshop for researchers who are new to experimental philosophy and are interested in learning more about how to further develop an idea they may have for a research project. Presenters will pitch their ideas to other workshop participants and conference attendees and will receive feedback and advice on experimental design, the construction of research materials, and statistical analysis. Anyone interested in participating in the workshop should submit a detailed description of their project idea.
The conference registration fee will be $60 for faculty and $30 for graduate students, post-docs, and independent scholars.
Submissions should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 1, 2016.
