UPSS Biennial Meeting Session
PSA Biennial Meeting UPSS Session
All UPSS scholars participating in the UPSS Mentoring Program who are current graduate students or within 3 years of receiving their PhD are eligible to submit a paper for presentation in the UPSS Session at the PSA Biennial Meeting. UPSS scholars work with their mentors to refine a paper for presentation on any topic in the philosophy of science. If you do not yet have a mentor, please click here, and indicate that you would also like assistance developing a talk to present at the PSA Biennial Meeting.
Co-authored papers are permitted only if all co-authors are participants in the UPSS Mentoring Program. Papers co-authored with an UPSS mentor are only allowed if the mentee is the first author and PSA session presenter.
Submissions must include a 1,000-word abstract, not including references. Abstracts should be prepared for blind review. A second, short abstract of no more than 100 words should also be submitted for inclusion in the PSA program if accepted. The UPSS Session submission form also asks you to provide a brief diversity statement explaining how your participation would contribute to increasing diversity and advancing the mission of the UPSS Initiative.
Abstracts will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the UPSS Committee. For PSA 2020/2021, the subcommittee consists of Kareem Khalifa, Soazig Le Bihan, and Anjan Chakravartty.
The top three submitted abstracts will be selected for presentation at the biennial meeting.
