CFP: PHLINC //events//

Posted: 23 de September de 2011 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers, Event

PHLING, a graduate student research group in philosophy and
linguistics at the University of Maryland, is hosting its first
interdisciplinary research symposium, PHLINC (Philosophy &
LinguisticsColloquium) on //events//. We hope to bring together young
researchers working on events in philosophy, linguistics and
psychology. We aim to relate the discussion of events in these fields,
bringing into conversation the work in ontology, logic, semantics, and
We will also have two invited speakers: Achille Varzi, of Columbia
University, and Paul Pietroski, of the University of Maryland.

Submissions are open to *graduate student researchers only*. 10
students will have 30 minutes to present their work, followed by 15
minutes for round-table discussion. The symposium will take place over
the weekend of the 31st of March and the 1st of April, in College Park
MD. Each day, we will reserve some time for closing discussion.

We are accepting two varieties of submissions for consideration to
participate in the symposium, depending on the author’s preferences:

TYPE 1 – Abstract – maximum 1 page of text single-spaced, 12pt font,
with 1 additional page for examples, figures, and references.

TYPE 2 – Paper – maximum 4000 words, double-spaced, 12pt font,
suitable for a 30 minute presentation. Please include references.

All abstracts/paper submissions will be considered by an
interdisciplinary audience. Ideally, the composition of speakers will
reflect in equal parts contributions from Linguistics, Philosophy, and
Psychology. As the goal of the symposium is to bring together
researchers with a strong focus on interdisciplinary cognitive
science, reviewers will be looking for evidence in abstract/paper
submissions that the author(s) are able to communicate effectively to
individuals outside of their primary field.

We will be accepting abstract/paper submissions until January 7th,
2012, and final selections will be made by February 4th, 2012.
Abstracts/papers should be sent to, with “Events –
Abstract” or “Events – Paper” as well as your name in the title of the

Note that as this is a graduate student symposium, we will make
special efforts to help with accommodations in College Park or
Washington, D.C., and transportation to the university. Details will
be provided closer to the date on our website, at
