CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite paper submissions or proposals for panel discussions addressing any topic of interest to Christian philosophers. All areas of philosophy are welcome, including analytic and continental approaches.

Special Tracks

We also invite submissions for two special tracks being held. We will dedicate one morning session (four papers) to the topic of apologetics. We will also dedicate a morning session (four papers) to the topic of science, mathematics, and technology. The science and technology track will be followed in the afternoon by a panel discussion on the same topic. If you would like to apply to one of the two tracks, please indicate in your submission email for which track you would like to be considered.
