This year’s keynote speakers are Elizabeth Harman (Princeton) and L.A. Paul (Yale). 

We invite abstracts from current graduate students in any area of philosophy. Abstracts should be no more than 1500 words, including notes, and prepared for blind review. Please also include a cover letter (as a separate file) stating your name, affiliation, email address, and the subject area of your submission (e.g. ethics, metaphysics, epistemology).

Deadline for submissions: 1 June, 2021

Submissions and enquiries should be sent to

Each successful applicant will be allocated a faculty respondent, who will provide written comments and serve as a commentator at the conference. Successful applicants are expected to send a longer version of their paper (3000-4000 words) to their allocated respondent by November 9th.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to cover speakers’ travel and accommodation costs. However, two lunches and one conference dinner will be provided.

We are planning for an in-person event. However, it is currently unclear whether restrictions on international mobility will be removed by December 2021 and whether the situation at that time will allow speakers to be comfortable with international travel. Should an in-person event cease to be feasible or preferable, we will switch to an online or hybrid format.

On behalf of the philosophy graduate students at Stockholm University,
