Meeting Description:

23rd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology in Tartu, Estonia, 14-17 July 2015.

The aim of the European Society for Philosophy & Psychology is ‘to promote interaction between philosophers and psychologists on issues of common concern’. Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists and biologists are encouraged to report experimental, theoretical and clinical work that they judge to have philosophical significance; and philosophers are encouraged to engage with the fundamental issues addressed by and arising out of such work

In recent years ESPP sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, theory of mind, attention, joint attention, reference, problems of consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early numerical cognition, infants’ understanding of intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the semantics/pragmatics distinction, minimalism in linguistic theory, reasoning, vagueness, mental causation, action and agency, thought without language, externalism, hypnosis, and the interpretation of neuropsychological results.

Keynote Speakers:

Cecilia Heyes (Psychology, University of Oxford)
Joshua Knobe (Philosophy, Yale University)
Lucy O’Brien (Philosophy, University College London)
Marilyn Vihman (Linguistics, University of York)

Invited Symposia:

‘Counterfactual Emotions’ (Organizer: Sarah Beck, University of Birmingham)
‘Two Systems’ Accounts of Mindreading’ (Organizer: Stephen Butterfill, University of Warwick)
‘Experimental Approaches to Meaning’ (Organizer: Daniel Cohnitz, University of Tartu)
‘Language and Schizophrenia’ (Organizer: Wolfram Hinzen, Durham University)

Programme Chairs:

Ian Phillips
Hannes Rakoczy

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 organisers 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, max. 3000 words) for a total 30 minute session. Submissions may consist of a 500-word abstract, though in the case of philosophical submissions a full paper is preferred (though not essential).

A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract.

When submitting your paper or poster online, please indicate which is 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 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 PDF-format and should be properly anonymized in order to allow for blind refereeing.

Submission Deadline: 11 April 2015
