Call for Papers

The Asian Network for the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (ANPOSS), the European Network for the Philosophy of the Social Sciences (ENPOSS), and the Philosophy of Social Science Roundtable (POSS-RT) invites contributions to their first joint conference. The conference will be held online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Contributions from all areas in the philosophy of the social sciences are encouraged. Moreover, contributions from both philosophers and social scientists are welcome.


Contributions can be either of individual papers or of special-theme, and they must be submitted through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=posstky2021. Only one contribution per person will be considered.

– Deadline for submission: 20 December 2020

– Notification of acceptance: 20 January 2021

For individual paper submissions, an abstract of up to 500 words suitably prepared for blind reviewing should be submitted in plain text (do not attach files).

For submission of special-theme symposia, comprising 3 to 4 papers, a single document should be submitted by attaching a WORD file.  It must contain the title of the symposium, the name of the organizer(s), the names of all the participants (a maximum of 4)  and titles of their papers, a general abstract of the symposium (between 400 and 500 words), plus an abstract of each single paper (up to 500 words each).

Each submission, whether of an individual paper or a symposium, will be blindly reviewed by two members of the Scientific Committee.


Those accepted are expected to give a live zoom presentation (40 minutes including Q&A session).  While efforts will be made to consider the time difference as much as possible, please note that you may be asked to give the presentation early in the morning or late in the evening.
