Oficina de Filosofia Analítica 8

Graduate Workshop - Oficina de Filosofia Analítica 8

The Oficina de Filosofia Analítica -- OFA is a graduate workshop that has been co-organized by the Portuguese Philosophy Society (SPF) and the Portuguese Society for Analytic Philosophy (SPFA) until now. This is the first time that the workshop is organized by the LanCog group, although still with the support of both societies.

It is also the first time that an international call for abstracts will be made.
This edition of OFA, its eight, is particularly special, as it is integrated in the workshop Coordination and Disagreement across Perspectives -- a networking activity of the EUROCORES EuroUnderstanding Programme. We believe that this will provide a good opportunity for graduate students and recent post-docs to participate in the EuroUnderstanding workshop, and for the senior researchers to attend the graduate workshop.

There will be 6 slots for graduate students, or researchers who have obtained their PhDs within the last 2 years, to present their work.
Call for abstracts!!!

This call for abstracts is directed at graduate students and researchers who have obtained their PhDs within the last 2 years. All submitted abstracts must be in English or Portuguese, and must be on philosophy with no further restrictions as regards topics or areas. Final papers will be presented at the workshop (30 minutes) followed by a commentary (10 minutes) and an open discussion (35 minutes). There are two ways of participating in the workshop, as a speaker or as a commentator.

Contributed papers

Authors should send an abstract of 1500 words (where the thesis defended and the arguments backing them up should be clearly stated) to < ofa8workshop AT gmail.com >. Abstracts should be arranged for blind refereeing. Information about authors should be indicated on a separate title page including title of the paper, author’s full name, e-mail address and affiliation. The selection will be carried out by the members of our scientific committee. Authors may also express their interest to participate as commentators.


Those interested in participating as commentators should send their data (name, e- mail address, affiliation and a short CV) to < ofa8workshop AT gmail.com >. A description of the main areas of philosophy they are interested in will also be required.


Submitted abstracts will be accepted until the 30th of April 2012. The result of the selection process will be communicated to the authors by the end of June 2012. Speakers must send the final version of their papers before the 30th of July 2012.


Meals (lunch, coffee breaks and one social dinner) are covered for speakers at OFA8. We have a small budget to help cover accommodation costs. Speakers must pay for their travel expenses themselves.
