Call for Papers
The Philosophy of Science Association is delighted to launch a new initiative called PSA Around the World. The aim of the initiative is to reach out to the global community of philosophers of science and spotlight the rich diversity of practices and traditions in the field of philosophy of science via fully online conferences with a dedicated regional focus, running in the years when the Biennial Meeting of the PSA does not take place.
Our inaugural PSA 2023 Around the World has a focus on East Asia including South East Asia.
The conference will run fully online on ZOOM for three days and in different time slots to accommodate a global audience on various time zones: Sunday 5th November 2023; Saturday 11th November 2023; Friday 17th November 2023 (precise timing for each day TBA).
Contributed papers may be on any topic in philosophy of science and the conference is open to all PSA members worldwide. Given the time zones constraints, and with an eye to increasing diversity of topics, we regret that there is no call for symposia for this conference.
The PSA 2023 Around the World Committee is committed to assembling a program with high-quality papers on a variety of topics and diverse presenters that reflect the full range of current work in the philosophy of science. Scholars working in East Asia are particularly encouraged to submit papers, and papers exploring the philosophy of science in East Asian contexts are most welcome.
Submissions should consist of a 1000 word abstract and should be prepared for anonymous review with no information identifying the author in the body of the abstract. For co-authored papers, the presenting author should upload the abstract. Abstracts should be submitted using the conference EasyChair link: https://easychair.org/cfp/PSA_2023_Around_the_World
The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on 31 March 2023.
The Program Committee expects to announce its decision on papers accepted for presentation by the end of June 2023. Authors of accepted abstracts are encouraged to post full-length papers as PSA 2023 Around the World Conference Papers at philsci-archive.pitt.edu (a publicly accessible digital archive) prior to the meeting if they wish to do so. Paper presentation at the conference should take no more than 15 minutes to allow 15 min for questions (30 min time slot per paper).
In accordance with current PSA policy, no one is permitted to present more than once at each PSA meeting. A scholar may appear as co-author on more than one paper but may present only once at PSA 2023 Around the World.
General questions about contributed papers should be directed to the Chair of the PSA 2023 Around the World Program Committee, Michela Massimi, at email@example.com. To maintain anonymity in the review process, questions about specific submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, as this address will be monitored by someone not involved in the review process.
