Call for papers
Papers on any topic within practical philosophy (broadly conceived) are invited for the 2011 annual conference of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy, hosted by the University of Amsterdam.

The Annual Dutch Conference on Practical Philosophy brings together ethical theorists and political philosophers as well as philosophers and researchers working in related fields to present and discuss their work in practical philosophy. The Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy (Onderzoekschool Ethiek) is a central meeting place for members and Ph.D. students working in practical philosophy in the Netherlands, and for this conference it warmly welcomes non-members and researchers in practical philosophy from outside the Netherlands, too.

The conference will have two kinds of parallel sessions. Half of the sessions will be organized by the coordinators of the various seminars (werkgroepen) of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy, and will focus on specific themes in practical philosophy. Members of these seminars who wish to present in one of these sessions are asked to contact the relevant coordinator(s) of these seminars for further details.

Abstract submission
The other sessions will be devoted to papers received in response to this call for papers, and may address any topic within practical philosophy (broadly conceived). The deadline for submission of abstracts for these sessions is 15 May 2011. Please send your abstract of no more than 500 words in the body of an email message to with the subject line “Conference Abstract.” Notification of acceptance will be sent by 24 June. If the submissions outnumber the available slots, a selection will be made on the basis of the quality of the abstracts, and abstracts of members and Ph.D. students of the Research School will be given priority. In writing your abstract, please bear in mind that full papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation.
