registration form



The aim of the Society is "to promote interaction between philosophers,  linguists, 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. In recent years ESPP sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, simulation theory, attention, problems of consciousness, emotion, perception, early numerical cognition, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, reasoning, vagueness, cognitive semantics, semantic-pragmatic-distinction, deixis, mental causation, action, thought without language, externalism, connectionism, and the interpretation of neuropsychological results.

The complete list of invited speakers and themes for invited symposia will be available shortly. At the moment, confirmed invited speakersinclude:
Peter Gärdenfors (Lund University)
Mañuel García Carpintero (University of Barcelona)
Tim Dalgleish (Cambridge University)
Matthew Crocker (Saarland University)

Confirmed symposia include:
Game Theory in Linguistics and Cognitive Science (convenor: Robert van
Rooy,  Amsterdam).

Hypnosis   (convenor: Zsoltan Dienes, Sussex)
Self recognition (convenor: Marc Jeannerod, Lyon)

The Society invites submitted papers and posters for this meeting.

Submitted papers are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and  relevance to psychologists, linguists and philosophers. Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced pages) for sessions which will last a total of 30 minutes. Papers must be accompanied by a camera-ready 300-word abstract (to be included in the conference booklet).

From this year there will also be thematic sessions: authors are invited to submit together 3 or 4 papers under a common theme to be refereed jointly and assessed for acceptance as a themed symposium. There will also be poster presentations. A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract.

Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as posters.
