Twenty-Third Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association: Call for Symposium Proposals and Call for Papers

November 15-17, 2012 / San Diego, CA


Submission is now open for proposals for symposia to be presented at the PSA2012 meeting in San Diego, CA on November 15-17, 2012. Symposia may be on any topic in the philosophy of science. The PSA2012 Program Committee will strive for quality, variety, innovation and diversity on the program. Members of the PSA2012 Program Committee are listed at www.philsci.org.


Symposia should involve several presenters, typically 4-5, organized around a topic of interest. A selection of symposia will be accepted for presentation at the PSA2012 meeting. Symposium presenters may submit their papers, after the conference, for review for publication in a supplementary issue of Philosophy of Science. The evaluation for publication will be of individual papers. All symposium papers submitted for review for publication will be electronically archived, whether or not they are accepted for publication. The submission deadline for symposium papers will be announced at a later date.
Symposia that make connections with, or include, working scientists, as well as symposia of potential interest to members of both the Philosophy of Science Association and the History of Science Society are warmly invited. We will not be considering �Author Meets Critics� sessions (but topical sessions that build upon recently published books are acceptable).
Proposals must include sufficient supporting material to permit the program committee to evaluate the quality and interest of the symposium. Proposals for symposia should include:
  1. The title of the proposed symposium
  2. A short descriptive summary of the proposal (100-200 words)
  1. A description of the topic and a justification of its current importance to the discipline (up to 500 words)
  2. Titles and abstracts (up to 250 words) of all papers
  3. A list of participants and either an abbreviated curriculum vitae or short biographical description (not to exceed 1 page) for each participant
  4. Institutional affiliation and e-mail addresses for all participants
  5. Full contact information for the organizer (who may or may not be a proposed speaker), to be used for communication with the Program Committee
The deadline for Symposium proposals is January 5, 2012. Symposium organizers will be informed of the Program Committee�s decision prior to the deadline for submitting contributed papers (March 1, 2012).
Submissions must be electronically submitted through the Philosophy of Science Editorial Manager at phos.edmgr.com. First time users must register on Editorial Manager.
Please note that in accordance with current PSA policy, (1) No previously published paper may be presented at the PSA meeting, and (2) No one will be permitted to appear more than once in a substantive role on the program (e.g., presenting a paper in a symposium or contributed papers session). Symposium participants are, therefore, encouraged to notify their symposium organizers if they submit a contributed paper or are involved in more than one symposium proposal. If an accepted symposium subsequently loses participants due to multiple submissions, acceptance of the symposium proposal will become contingent upon the symposium organizer developing satisfactory alternatives to maintain the quality and coherence of the session.
All questions about submissions should be directed to the chair of the program committee for PSA2012, Andrea Woody, at awoody@u.washington.eduMailing address: Department of Philosophy, Box 353350, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195

Call for Papers

Submission is now open for papers to be presented at the PSA2012 meeting in San Diego, CA on November 15-17, 2012. Contributed papers may be on any topic in the philosophy of science. The PSA2012 Program Committee will strive for quality, variety, innovation and diversity on the program. Members of the PSA2012 Program Committee are listed at www.philsci.org.
The deadline for paper submissions is March 1, 2012. Some papers will be accepted for both presentation at PSA2012 and publication in a supplementary issue of Philosophy of Science; other papers will be accepted for presentation only. Both types of accepted paper will be electronically archived prior to the meeting. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present abbreviated versions of their papers at the conference (the paper presentation should take no more than twenty minutes). The Program Committee expects to announce its decision on papers for presentation by the end of May 2012 and on papers to be published in Philosophy of Science by mid June. Final versions of all papers accepted for publication must be re-submitted by January 10, 2013.
The maximum manuscript length is 5,000 words, including abstract, footnotes, and references. If the text includes tables or figures, an appropriate number of words should be subtracted from the limit. Submissions must include a 100-word abstract and a word count. Format and citation style should match those ofPhilosophy of Science (see journal.philsci.org/format.html for details). Submissions should be prepared for blind review, with no identifying information in the body of the paper or abstract. 
(See journal.philsci.org/submissions.html#blinding for guidelines about blinding papers.)
Submissions must be electronically submitted through the Philosophy of Science Editorial Manager at phos.edmgr.com. First time users must register on Editorial Manager.
