Seventh annual Edinburgh graduate epistemology conference

Keynote speakersMaria Lasonen-Aarnio (University of Michigan),  Ram Neta (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill)


We invite submissions of papers from graduate students to the 7th Annual Edinburgh Graduate Epistemology Conference.  Essays within any area of epistemology (broadly construed) are welcome.  Essays should be under 4000 words.

We would really like the conference to be representative of the graduate community and so we strongly encourage submissions from anyone working on epistemology who is a member of an under-represented group.

The submission deadline for the conference is 15 February 2017.

A distinguishing feature of this conference is that all graduate presentations will have respondents from faculty members at Edinburgh or a neighbouring university. The format of the conference will be a 30 minute talk followed by a 10 minute response with 20 minutes for questions.


Submissions will be handled through EasyChair.

The submission page

Papers should be prepared for blind review and should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words. They should be in .doc .docx or .pdf format.

Further information

All graduate presenters will have accommodation and meals provided.
