Call For Posters, PSA 2022


Submission is now open for abstracts for posters to be presented at the PSA2022 meeting in Pittsburgh, PA. The conference will begin at 8:30 am on November 10 and last through 3:00 pm on November 13. The poster forum will be on the evening of November 11, Friday. The deadline for full consideration of poster abstracts is 11:59pm EDT, June 15, 2022. There will be no assistance available from the Executive Office past 5pm EDT on June 15, 2022 and any posters that are not submitted by the deadline will not be eligible for consideration. The poster committee expects to announce its decisions on abstract proposals on an ongoing basis. The PSA will once again be offering Dependent Care Subsidies of up to $200 and PSA registrants will also have access to on-site childcare services.

Poster abstracts may be on any research topic in the philosophy of science, the teaching of philosophy of science, outreach related endeavors in philosophy of science, and philosophy of science focused grant projects. The PSA2022 poster committee will strive for quality, variety, innovation, and diversity in accepted abstracts, and we are especially interested in work related to teaching and outreach not typically represented on the main program. Members of the PSA2022 Poster Committee are listed here.

The maximum poster abstract length is 500 words, including any references. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous review, with no information identifying the author in the abstract.

Reviewing will be “triple-masked,” with neither reviewers nor the poster committee chair having access to the author’s identity during the review process.

Poster abstracts should be submitted to, a US-based conference management system. Select PSA2022 Posters as your submission type and follow the instructions given there. At least one author must be available to present the poster at the poster forum. For coauthored or multi-authored abstracts, the presenting author should provide and upload the abstract; non-presenting co-authors are required to go to the same site to respond to demographic questions.

The PSA policy regarding multiple submissions to PSA2022 and presenting no more than once on the main program does not apply to poster abstracts. Main program participation and poster forum presentation are not mutually exclusive. A presenting author on a contributed paper or participating in a symposium may also submit one poster abstract on a substantially different topic. If the abstract is accepted, then the author may present (or co-present) the poster at PSA2022.

Instructions and advice for creating posters can be found here.

General questions about poster abstracts should be directed to the chair of the PSA2022 Poster Committee, ?erife Tekin, at To maintain anonymity in the review process, questions about specific submissions should be sent to, which will be monitored by someone not involved in the review process.
