Call for Papers and Posters

As in the past, the GAP.9-congress will have several sections of contributed talks serving a comprehensive exchange on all topics of analytic philosophy. The GAP invites all interested persons to submit contributions to GAP.9.

In order to submit your paper or poster to GAP.9, please send

  • an email to
  • by February 1, 2015,
  • containing a short abstract (max. 350 words) and a longer summary (about 1.000 words) stating the central claims and arguments of your contribution,
  • in rtf-, doc-, docx- or pdf-format;
  • please let us also know for which section your contribution is submitted and
  • whether it is a paper or poster.

The longer summary must be suitably anonymized, i.e., prepared for a double blind review process; submissions will be reviewed by at least two referees. You will be notified about the decision by May 2015.

All submissions can be either in German or in English. Talks must not exceed 25 minutes; then there will be 10 minutes time for discussion. Posters will be presented in DIN A0 format.

Papers and posters can be independently submitted and will be independently reviewed. If more acceptable talks are submitted than there are slots in the respective section, we may propose to submit a poster instead.
