Call for submissions

Call for Extended Abstracts and Reviewers: CRNAP Philosophy of Language Workshop (June 21–22, 2014)

The Cooperative Research Network in Analytic Philosophy (CRNAP) links the philosophy departments at Oxford, Princeton, ANU, and IJN.

Oxford is hosting a CRNAP workshop in June 2014. The aim of the workshop is to foster cooperative exchange and collaborative work among graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and faculty members working in the philosophy of language, broadly construed. Overlap with cognate areas in metaphysics, epistemology, logic, and the philosophy of mind is encouraged.


We invite Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers at Oxford, Princeton, ANU, and IJN to submit extended abstracts, of between 500 and 1,500 words, prepared for blind review.

If your submission is accepted, you will be asked to submit a full paper, of up to 3,000 words, for your talk by May 23, 2014. You may also be asked if you would like to comment on a presentation by another presenter at the workshop. Please prepare your talk for a 25-minute presentation, to be followed by a 10-minute period for comments (by a pre-designated commenter) and a 25-minute period for general discussion.

We are also looking for reviewers of submissions from outside of their home institution. Please let us know if you would like to help review submissions as soon as possible.
