ISCWP 2016 Eastern APA CFP

Dear ISCWP members,

The ISCWP plans to sponsor one or two panels at the 2016 APA Eastern Division meeting (which will take place in January 4-7, 2017 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA). 

Please send all submissions Send abstracts and proposals to: by Sunday May 15, 2016.

Our Goal: We would like to encourage submissions of proposals of individual papers and panels. We welcome any papers or panels that promote in-depth engagement between Chinese and Western philosophy. The submissions will be reviewed by all the three members of the board. When we select papers, we normally try to find papers that have common theme to form a panel. You may have a better chance to be accepted if you submit a panel proposal which already has a common theme.

Eligibility: We continue to welcome non-ISCWP members to propose papers to be included on an ISCWP-sponsored panel, or even propose a panel that is related to the ISCWP’s aims, so please feel free to send this notice to philosophers who might be interested even if they are not ISCWP members yet. 

1. To submit a paper proposal, please provide a 250-300 word abstract. The abstract needs to include the presenter’s name, institutional affiliation, paper title, and email address.

2. To submit a panel proposal, please provide an overall abstract of the panel topic of 250-300 words, including due justification. It must include the following for each chair, speaker, and commentator on your panel: 

·   –  Name as it is to appear in print

·   –  Affiliation

·   –  email address

·   –  paper title and abstract (for presenters)

I really look forward to receiving your proposals!

All the best,


Yang Xiao
