Joint Session - Call for papers

Open Sessions of the 2015 Joint Session: Call for Papers

The 89th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association will be held at the University of Warwick from 10 to 12 July 2015.

The Open Sessions take place during the Saturday and Sunday afternoons of the conference. There are a large number of places available, with no restrictions on the areas of philosophy that may be addressed. The intention is to accommodate all philosophical material that is suitable for presentation, though a more selective procedure may have to be adopted in case the number of suitable submissions exceeds the available places. There are 20 minutes available for each Open Session talk (plus an additional 10 minutes for discussion).


  • Submissions must not exceed 2000 words, including footnotes and bibliography, and must begin with a 100-250 word abstract.
  • Submissions should include a title page containing the name of the author, title of the paper, institution, and email address.
  • Submissions may be formatted in Word or PDF. Papers containing symbols liable to distortion should be submitted in PDF.

The closing date for submissions is 1 February 2015.
