The Tenth Annual Estonian Philosophy Conference (EFAK X): DISAGREEMENTS

Tartu, September 25-27, 2014

EFAK X, the Tenth Annual Estonian Philosophy Conference, will take place in Tartu, from September 25 to September 27, 2014, organized by the Institute of Philosophy and Semiotics of the University of Tartu. This year’s topic is “disagreements”.

Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Prof. Esa Diaz Leon (University of Manitoba/University of Barcelona)

Call for contributed papers: Organizers invite contributions to EFAK X: Disagreements. We particularly welcome contributions on the topic of disagreements, but will also consider philosophical papers in all areas of philosophy.

EFAK X will have three different kinds of talk:
* at least two invited keynotes (45 minutes presentation + 30 minutes discussion).
* contributed plenary talks (35 minutes presentation + 25 minutes discussion)
* and contributed parallel talks (20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes discussion)

The acceptance of contributed papers and the division between contributed parallel and contributed plenary talks will be decided on the basis of blind peer review by the scientific committee. The idea is that a small number of the very best papers will get more time for presentation and discussion.

Abstracts must be written in English or Estonian and prepared for blind review. Please submit a relatively detailed abstract of up to 800 words, outlining not only the position defended but also the argument for that position. Abstracts should indicate the title of the paper and the area(s) of philosophy to which it belongs. Abstracts should have the following format: Times New Roman, font size 10, 1,5 line spacing. Submissions should be in doc format (not pdf) and sent to Please include your contact details and your affiliation in the main body of the email.

The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2014. Notification of acceptance is expected by September 1.
