CfA: European Society for Aesthetics Conference 2019

European Society for Aesthetics Conference 2019
University of Warsaw

The European Society for Aesthetics annual conference 2019 will be co-organised by the ESA and Institute of Philosophy at the University of Warsaw, and will take place in Warsaw (Poland) 12th-14th of June 2019. The Keynote speakers will be Hanne Appelqvist, Ruth Sonderegger, and Erika Fischer-Lichte.

Submission Guidelines
We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are acceptable.

Submissions must be long abstracts (800-1200 words in length) presenting not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also the arguments in favour of them. 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 20-25 minute presentation, with about another 20 minutes designated for discussion. Please note 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 to allow 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=esa20190

We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free): http://www.eurosa.org/

The deadline for submissions of papers is January 13 2019, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by mid-February, depending on the number of submissions.

All papers presented at the conference are eligible for publication in the Proceedings of the ESA. (http://proceedings.eurosa.org)

NEW! Panel submissions

If you wish to propose a panel, please email Karen Simecek (secretary@eurosa.org) by January 6 2019 with details of your panel (panel title, list of speakers, titles of their papers and a brief rationale for the panel) and then ask individual members of the panel to upload their abstracts to EasyChair individually (marked with the name of the panel). We will then do our best to evaluate these abstracts as a panel and if all accepted, group together under that theme. Panels are also eligible for inclusion in the proceedings.
