Conference Format

Due to the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic, a decision has not yet
been made as to whether this will be an in person conference, a hybrid
conference, or an online conference. The ESPP committee hopes to make a
decision about this by the end of April and will notify attendees.


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 should typically include perspectives
from at least two different disciplines (e.g., philosophy and linguistics).
Symposia organizers 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.

Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced
pages) for a total 30 minutes session. Submissions may consist of a
500-word abstract, though in the case of philosophical submissions a full
paper is preferred.

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

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

Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as a poster if
space constraints prevent acceptance as a paper or if the submission is
thought more suitable for presentation as a poster.

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

The deadline for all submissions is April 1st (midnight, GMT), 2021.

Submissions should be made online via Easychair:


General Aim

The aim of the European Society for Philosophy & Psychology is ‘to promote
interaction between philosophers and psychologists 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 theory of mind, attention, reference, problems of
consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early
numerical cognition, spatial concepts, infants’ understanding of
intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the
semantics/pragmatics distinction, comparative cognition, minimalism in
linguistic theory, reasoning, vagueness, mental causation, action and
agency, thought without language, externalism, hypnosis, and the
interpretation of neuropsychological results.
