Call for Papers
European Society for Aesthetics Conference 2018
Maribor (Slovenia) 14–16 June 2018
Submission deadline: January 15 2018
The European Society for Aesthetics would like to invite you to submit a paper for presentation at the ESA Conference 2018, to be held at the Alma Mater Europaea – European Center Maribor, Slovenia 14–16 June 2018. The conference will be co-organised by the ESA, the Slovenian Society for Aesthetics, and the Alma Mater Europaea – Institutum Studiorum Humanitatis. The conference marks the 10th anniversary of the ESA.
We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are acceptable. This year we welcome submissions addressing the theme “Art and Life” around which special sessions will be arranged.
We encourage the presentation of submissions in English, but submissions in other major European languages will be considered equally. For each talk, there will be time for a 25-minute presentation, with about another 20 minutes designated for discussion. All papers presented at the conference are eligible for publication in the Proceedings of the ESA. (http://proceedings.eurosa.org)
Submissions must be long abstracts, between 800 and 1.200 words in length, presenting not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also the chief considerations and arguments in favour of them. Please notice that full paper submissions will not be accepted and submissions are limited to one per person.
Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text completely anonymous, allowing for blind refereeing. To submit your long abstract, please use the EasyChair online submission system (first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair): https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esa2018
We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free):

The deadline for submissions of papers is January 15 2018, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by mid-February, depending on the number of submissions.
Further information about the conference will soon be available on ESA website. Please send all your questions to the conference organizers: firstname.lastname@example.org
