Contact: Nicole Potenza,

The Bonn Graduate Conference is part of the "Rhine Valley Philosophy Summer" , a series of events independently organized by philosophers in Bonn and Cologne. Its aim is to give graduate students the opportunity to present their work to leading researchers in philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics.

We invite applications for presentations at the Bonn Graduate Conference in Philosophy taking place on 11 June 2011 at the University of Bonn, Germany.
Participants of the Graduate Conference are also invited to participate in the conference on "Contexts, Perspectives, and Relative Truth" beginning on 9 June
2011 at the University of Bonn.

There will be up to seven talks by graduate students. Talks with a thematic focus on contextualism and relativism are given priority, but general submissions on broader topics in epistemology, philosophy of language and philosophy of science are welcome and will be considered. The conference language is English.

Submissions for the graduate conference should be sent electronically to We expect an abstract of 300 words and a full paper in English of less than 3000 words, including bibliography (as WORD or preferably .pdf-File), suitable for 20 minute presentations. After the presentation, there will be an open discussion.
