2nd IFL Graduate Student Conference: “Reasons and Deliberation in Real-World Contexts”

DATES: JUNE 17TH-18TH 2013

The Instituto de Filosofia da Linguagem (Institute for the Philosophy of Language) at FCSH-Universidade Nova de Lisboa (New University of Lisbon) is proud to announce its second Graduate Student Conference, to be held on the 17th and 18th of June, 2013, as part of the “Argumentation, Communication, and Context” project.

Keynote speakers:

Dr. Hugo Mercier (CNRS Research Scientist, Laboratoire Langage, Cerveau et Cognition, Lyon, France)


Dr. Catherine Moury (Assistant Professor, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal)


Following the title of the conference, we are inviting graduate students from a variety of disciplines to deliver a 30-minute presentation discussing their current research pertaining to reason-giving and deliberation. The aim is to discuss the application of theoretical observations to empirical, or real-world, scenarios and thus highlight the importance of context to the processes of reason-giving and deliberation.

Abstract Submission Deadline: 1 April 2013

Submission guidelines: Submissions should consist of a 350-500 word abstract and be suitable for blind review. Abstracts and author information should be e-mailed as attachments to Michael Baumtrog at . Please place the abstract in one file and the author(s) contact information in a separate file (.doc(x) or .pdf).

Due to the international origins of the presenters and audience members, presenters are encouraged to submit papers in English, although Portuguese submissions will be given equal consideration.
