Salzburg Conference for Young Analytic Philosophy: SOPhiA 2020

September 2 – 4, 2020
Department of Philosophy (Humanities), University of Salzburg, Austria

SOPhiA 2020 provides an opportunity for students and doctoral candidates in philosophy to take a first peek into the philosophical business and to get in touch with prospective and well established philosophers. Contributions in every discipline of philosophy (epistemology, ethics, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of religion, philosophy of science, etc.) are welcome. As common in analytic philosophy, contributors should make use of understandable language as well as rational argumentation. In addition to the conference presentations there will also be affiliated workshops on selected topics in analytic philosophy.

Keynote Speakers:
* Marian David (University of Graz)
* Leah Henderson (University of Groningen)
* Herlinde Pauer-Studer (University of Vienna)

Call for papers:
Students and doctoral candidates (pre-doc) in philosophy are encouraged to submit an abstract prepared for double-blind review. We are committed to fostering diversity and equality in our programs. Submissions from underrepresented groups are particularly welcome. Abstracts should not exceed 2.000 characters. All submissions should be suitable for a presentation of approximately 20 minutes in length (plus 10 minutes discussion). Please submit your abstract with a biographical note and a short CV attached in a separate document at <> until May 1, 2020. Attendees are asked to register at the same site before the conference.
