Call for Papers & Posters

As in the preceding congresses there will be eight sections serving a comprehensive exchange on all topics of analytic philosophy. GAP invites all interested persons to submit contributions to GAP.8. There is a novelty: not only talks, but also posters can be submitted. All submissions can be either in German or in English language. Talks must not exceed 25 minutes; then there will be 10 minutes time for discussion. Posters will be presented in the DIN A0 format.

Talks and posters can be independently submitted and will be independently reviewed. If more acceptable talks should be submitted than time allows in the various sections, we reserve the right to propose a change to a submisssion in the poster sessions.

The University of Konstanz offers a best paper and a best poster award (500 Euro each).
