Society for Philosophy
The SPP sponsors an annual meeting, usually held in June. Meetings consist of invited lectures and symposia, contributed papers, and a Presidential address. Social events include a receptions and lunch meetings. SPP encourages suggestions for the invited portion of the program for upcoming meetings. These should be directed to this year's Program Co-Chairs. We also encourage members (especially non-philosophers) to submit contributed papers to the meeting.
The SPP Diversity Committee holds sessions at the annual meeting. In addition, in 2011 there was a meeting, chaired by Valerie Tiberius and Carrie Figdor, regarding the APA-funded project to use SPP expertise to begin experimentally Studying the Gender Gap in Philosophy. The resulting report is was published in Hypatia in 2012, Volume 27 (4):949-957.
* As a result of moving meeting time from fall to spring, no meeting was held between fall 1974 and spring 1976.
40th Annual Meeting, June 2014
The next meeting of the Society for Philosophy and Psychology will be held 19-21 June 2014. It will be held on the campus of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, co-hosted with Simon Fraser University. To honor the 40th anniversary, there will be a symposium to honor Fred Dretske and talks by the "Greats of SPP"
Schedule and Program
Registration and Dues Payment
Online registration payments can be made by credit card or PayPal. For on-site registration we will accept credit cards, cash ($US), and checks drawn on US banks. You can join the SPP or pay your annual dues along with your registration. If you join, you get to take advantage of member registration for this meeting.
Housing for the meeting
The University of British Columbia's campus is ~25 minute drive from downtown Vancouver. All housing options listed here are on campus and within walking distance of conference events. Downtown hotels access UBC via bus ($2.75/way) or taxi ($~35/way); however, we urge you to stay on Vancouver's beautiful campus to help us to fill our reserved room slots and keep rates down. Also, please book your rooms ASAP - we anticipate the 40th anniversary meeting will be very well attended but can only secure additional rooms with advance notice.
Conference rates are available until May 16 and can be applied to accommodation three days before the conference begins through three days after it ends.
You can access the web-portal for campus housing HERE.
