Submissions are welcome from current graduate students on any area of metaphysics. Metaphysics should be broadly construed to include not only traditional metaphysical topics, but also the metaphysical aspects of e.g. philosophy of mind, philosophy of physics, philosophy of religion, and aesthetics.
Submissions of any length up to 5,000 words will be considered.
Each paper presented at the conference will be followed by a response from a member of academic staff from the University of Leeds Department of Philosophy.
As with last year's conference we hope to be able to pay some or all of the travel and accommodation costs for those people whose papers are accepted. (This is dependent on successful funding applications.)
Please submit complete papers, preferably by e-mail, to Sarah Grant, email@example.com. Please mark your submission clearly as such. Receipt will be acknowledged asap. Submissions will also be accepted by mail:
School of Philosophy
University of Leeds
All papers should be suitable for blind review (we cannot guarantee anonymised refereeing if your paper is not suitably anonymised). Please include a cover page with title, abstract and contact details. Mailed submissions should include two copies.
Deadline for receipt of submissions is Friday 18th July 2008.
Decisions will be made by Friday 8th August 2008.
