APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTING
CALL FOR PAPERS
2003 JOINT SESSION OF THE MIND ASSOCIATION
AND THE ARISTOTELIAN SOCIETY
QUEENS' UNIVERSITY BELFAST, 18-21 JULY
A number of parallel sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons will be
available for the presentation of papers not previously published. It is
expected that at this year's Joint Session there will be a considerable
increase in the number of these sessions, allowing room for many more
submissions to be included than has been the case in previous years. The
intention is to accommodate all philosophical material, so far as time
and space in the programme allow, and not to operate a selective policy
Each presentation should last no more than 30 minutes, so that a
further 20-30 minutes may be allowed for discussion. Presented papers
should aim to introduce material involving recent research. There are no
restrictions on the areas of philosophy which papers may address.
Philosophers whose papers are included in this part of the programme
must register for the Joint Session, and in order to do so they will
have to be or become subscribing members of one of the organising
Those wishing to make a presentation should submit by e-mail
attachment a copy of their paper, together with a 250-word abstract, to
Professor David Evans (jdg.evans@...
) by March 1, 2003. Decisions
on whether papers have been accepted will be made by the end of April
Papers accepted for the Open Sessions will not be published in
the Supplementary Volume of the Aristotelian Society (unlike papers
invited for the plenary programme of the conference); and expenses will
not be paid.
Two parallel sessions on the Saturday afternoon will be devoted to short
presentations by graduate students (or those who have recently obtained
a postgraduate degree). Each student should speak for 20 minutes,
allowing 10 minutes for discussion.
Students wishing to participate should send their paper,
preferably by attachment in Word 95 or higher, otherwise in two hard
copies, by 1st March 2003 to: Mr. A. W. Price, Department of Philosophy,
Birkbeck College, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HX
The paper should be about 2000 words but no more than 2500
words, including notes and bibliography, and should be accompanied by a
brief abstract. It should be typewritten in 12-point text, double spaced
throughout (i.e. including references and quotations), on one side of
white A4 paper. All pages should be numbered and have margins of 1 inch
or more. Papers containing symbols liable to distortion in transmission
must be submitted as hard copies.
Please ensure that there are no self-identifying references in
the text. Submissions should be accompanied by a separate page
containing the title of the paper, the name of the author, institution
and status, and email and postal addresses.
Authors are welcome to seek the advice of supervisors about what
may be suitable for presentation to a largely professional audience.
Given the tight word-limit, they are advised to give as much space as
they can to the statement of their own ideas.
The papers will be sent to referees, and a maximum of eight will
be selected by the Joint Committee for presentation at the Joint
Session. The programme will be settled in May.
The selected authors will have their conference fee and
accommodation expenses (but not their travel costs) paid by the Mind
Association and the Aristotelian Society. Some papers may subsequently
be considered for publication in the Proceedings of the Aristotelian
Nobody should submit a paper for both the Postgraduate and the Open
Sessions. For further information about the Joint Session and other
