Meeting Description:

The conference provides a forum for interdisciplinary discussion among philosophers, psychologists and linguists. The aim of the European Society for Philosophy & Psychology is 'to promote interaction between philosophers, psychologists and linguists on issues of common concern'. Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists and biologists are encouraged to report experimental, theoretical and clinical work that they judge to have philosophical significance; and philosophers are encouraged to engage with the fundamental issues addressed by and arising out of such work. In recent years ESPP sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, theory of mind, attention, joint attention, reference, problems of consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early numerical cognition, infants' understanding of intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the semantics/pragmatics distinction, minimalism in linguistic theory, reasoning, vagueness, mental causation, action and agency, thought without language, externalism, hypnosis, and the interpretation of neuropsychological results.

Keynote Speakers:

Renée Baillargeon (Psychology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Bill Brewer (Philosophy, King's College London)
Marisa Carrasco (Psychology, New York University)
Richard Holton (Philosophy, University of Cambridge)

Invited symposia will include:

Bodily Representation (Organizer: Fredrique de Vignemont, Institut Jean-Nicod)
Plurality (Organizer: Eytan Zweig, University of York)
Attention (Organizer: Wayne Wu, Carnegie Mellon University)
Non-Verbal Theory of Mind (Organizer: Victoria Southgate, Birkbeck)

Call for Papers, Symposia, and Posters:

22nd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology
Noto, Sicily, 16-19 September 2014

The deadline for submission of symposia, papers and posters is 4 April.

Online submission: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=espp2014

The Society invites submitted symposia, papers and posters for this meeting. Submissions are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and relevance to psychologists, philosophers and linguists.

Symposia are allocated a two-hour slot and consist of a set of linked papers on a common theme. Symposia organisers should submit an outline of the symposium along with a list of speakers and abstracts as a single document. Please do not submit more than one PDF file per symposium. If we are unable to accept the symposium, we will consider the abstracts for inclusion as individual papers. Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced pages) for a total 30 minute session. Submissions may be by abstract (ca. 500 words) but in the case of philosophical submissions a full paper is preferred.

A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract.

When submitting your paper or poster online, please first indicate the primary discipline of your paper (philosophy, psychology, or linguistics) and then, by checking the respective box, whether your submission is intended as a paper or a poster.

Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as a poster, in case they are found unsuitable for presentation as a paper. If you would like us to consider your paper also as a poster, please check the box 'Paper or poster'.

All paper and poster submissions (whether abstracts or full papers) should be in PDF-format and should be properly anonymized in order to allow for blind refereeing.

The deadline for submission is 4 April 2014.

Please use the online submission form to be found at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=espp2014 (this requires registering with EasyChair, which is easy to do and free of charge).

If you have any questions, contact us by writing an email to: conferenceeurospp.org. We would be grateful if you could use this email for all correspondence related to the conference.

Program chairs: Fabian Dorsch, Teresa McCormack, Ian Phillips, Gillian Ramchand
