Call for papers
We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are acceptable. We encourage the presentation of submissions in English, but submissions in other major European languages will be considered equally. For each talk, there will be time for a 25-minute presentation, with about another 20 minutes designated for discussion. All accepted papers would be eligible for publication in the proceedings of the ESA. (http://proceedings.eurosa.org)
Submissions must be long abstracts, between 800 and 1.200 words in length, presenting not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also the chief considerations and arguments in favour of them. Please notice that full paper submissions will not be accepted and submissions are limited to one per person.
Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text completely anonymous, allowing for blind refereeing. To submit your long abstract, please use the EasyChair online submission system (first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair). https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=esa2017
We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free): https://www.eurosa.org/
The deadline for submissions of papers is the 15th of January 2017, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by mid February 2017.
