Call Deadline: 07-Jan-2012
PHLING, a graduate student research group in philosophy and linguistics at the University of Maryland, hosts its first interdisciplinary research symposium, PHLINC (Philosophy & Linguistics Colloquium) on //events//. We hope to bring together young researchers working on events in philosophy, linguistics and psychology. We aim to relate the discussion of events in these fields, bringing into conversation the work in ontology, logic, semantics, and perception. We will also have two invited speakers: Achille Varzi, of Columbia University, and Paul Pietroski, of the University of Maryland.
Call for Papers:
Submissions are open to graduate student researchers only. 10 students will have 30 minutes to present their work, followed by 15 minutes for round-table discussion. The symposium will take place over the weekend of the 31st of March and the 1st of April, in College Park MD. Each day, we will reserve some time for closing discussion.
We are accepting two varieties of submissions for consideration to participate in the symposium, depending on the author's preferences:
Type 1 - Abstract:
Maximum 1 page of text single-spaced, 12pt font, with 1 additional page for examples, figures, and references
Type 2 - Paper:
Maximum 4000 words, double-spaced, 12pt font, suitable for a 30 minute presentation. Please include references
All abstracts/paper submissions will be considered by an interdisciplinary audience. Ideally, the composition of speakers will reflect in equal parts contributions from Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology. As the goal of the symposium is to bring together researchers with a strong focus on interdisciplinary cognitive science, reviewers will be looking for evidence in abstract/paper submissions that the author(s) are able to communicate effectively to individuals outside of their primary field.
We will be accepting abstract/paper submissions until January 7th, 2012, and final selections will be made by February 4th, 2012. Abstracts/papers should be sent to phlingumd.edu, with 'Events - Abstract' or 'Events - Paper' as well as your name in the title of the email.
Note that as this is a graduate student symposium, we will make special efforts to help with accommodations in College Park or Washington, D.C., and transportation to the university. Details will be provided closer to the date.
