Call for Papers

We invite submissions of papers to be considered for presentation at a conference on The Foundations of Conceptual Engineering, to be held at New York University, on September 14 and 15, 2018. We encourage both submissions that are sympathetic with the project of conceptual engineering and submissions that are critical. We particularly welcome submissions from underrepresented groups in the profession. 


The conference is funded by the New York Institute of Philosophy (NYIP) and ConceptLab. Travel and accommodation expenses for all speakers will be covered.
