Call for Papers: European Society for Aesthetics Conference 2017

Berlin (Germany) 25–27 May 2017

Submission deadline: 15th of January 2017

The European Society for Aesthetics would like to invite you to submit
a paper for presentation at the ESA Conference 2017. The conference
will be co-organised by the ESA and the Institute of Philosophy of the
Freie Universität Berlin.

Keynote speakers to be announced soon.

We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in
philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical
presentations are acceptable. We encourage the presentation of
submissions in English, but submissions in other major European
languages will be considered equally. For each talk, there will be
time for a 25-minute presentation, with about another 20 minutes
designated for discussion. All accepted papers would be eligible for
publication in the proceedings of the ESA.

Submissions must be long abstracts, between 800 and 1.200 words in
length, presenting not only the main ideas and claims of the paper,
but also the chief considerations and arguments in favour of them.
Please notice that full paper submissions will not be accepted and
submissions are limited to one per person.

Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text
completely anonymous, allowing for blind refereeing. To submit your
long abstract, please use the EasyChair online submission system
(first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair).

The deadline for submissions of papers is the 15th of January 2017,
and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by
mid February 2017.

Further information about the conference, for example the names of the
keynotes, will soon be available on ESA website.

Please send all your questions to the
conference organizers:
