General Aim: The aim of ESPP is to promote interaction between philosophers, 
psychologists and linguists on topics of common concern.

The Society invites submitted symposia, papers and posters for this meeting. 
Submissions are refereed and selected on the basis of quality and relevance to 
psychologists, philosophers and linguists. Symposia are allocated a two-hour 
slot and consist of a set of linked papers on a common theme. Symposia 
organisers should submit an outline of the symposium along with a list of 
speakers and abstracts as a single document. Please do not submit more than one 
PDF file per symposium. Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 
8 double-spaced pages) for a total 30 minute session. Submissions may be by 
abstract (ca. 500 words) but in the case of philosophical submissions a full 
paper is preferred.

A submission for a poster presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract.

When submitting your paper or poster online, please first indicate the primary 
discipline of your paper (philosophy, psychology, or linguistics) and then, by 
checking the respective box, whether your submission is intended as a paper or 
a poster. Submitted papers may also be considered for presentation as a poster, 
in case they are found unsuitable for presentation as a paper. If you would 
like us to consider your paper also as a poster, please check the box 'Paper or 
All paper and poster submissions (whether abstracts or full papers) should be 
in PDF-format and should be properly anonymized in order to allow for blind
