The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics (APPE) is pleased to announce a Bioethics Track as a signature part of the 2014 Annual Meeting in Jacksonville, Florida. These sessions will foster discussion of conceptual, clinical, policy, and pedagogical issues in bioethics. APPE encourages persons from various disciplines and professions to participate in focused discussions of common concerns in practical and professional ethics.
Submissions for the Bioethics track will be considered in the following categories: individual paper presentation and panel presentations. Submission guidelines and further explanation of categories may be found at http://appe.indiana.edu/
Individual presentations—of a formal paper, work-in-progress, or case study—are 1 hour in length, and presenters are encouraged to organize their remarks for a 20-25 minute presentation so as to allow time for questions and discussion with attendees. Authors of individual presentations should submit a 500 word abstract (and also a 250 word abstract for publication in the program.)
All submission should be sent in pdf format to http://appe.indiana.edu/ in accordance with the submission guidelines.
To facilitate review by the appropriate subcommittee, those wanting their submission to be considered for the Bioethics track within the program should specify this interest in the email to which the abstracts and cover/title page are attached.
The deadline for submissions is October 25, 2013. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in December.
The 23rd Annual Meeting will take place February 27-March 2, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. More information is available on the APPE website at: http://appe.indiana.edu/.
