Annual Meeting

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 Chairs. We encourage philosophers, psychologists, and cognitive scientists more broadly to submit contributed papers to the meeting.

Diversity Initiatives

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. SPP is also now offering a number of travel awards for graduate students to encourage diversity.
