CALL FOR PAPERS: Philosophy of Social Science Roundtable 


May 19-20, 2017 

University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada


We welcome individual papers or symposia on any topic in philosophy of the social sciences. For the 2017 Roundtable, we especially encourage contributions related to social norms and values with regard to their implications for social science and its applications. We will assemble a program of workshop-format sessions so that intensive discussion can be the focus of the meeting.



  • To propose a paper or a symposium, prepare an extended abstract (500 words for a paper, 1,000 words for a symposium) for submission through EasyChair.
  • Submission deadline: February 8 2017
