Society for Philosophy of Science in Practice (SPSP) Tenth Biennial Conference

Call for Posters

The SPSP 2024 Call for Posters is now open, for poster abstracts to be presented at SPSP 2024 which will be hosted by the Ann Johnson Institute for Science, Technology and Society at the University of South Carolina. The conference dates are May 16–18, 2024; the traditional pre-conference workshop will be held on May 15.

Poster abstracts may be on any research topic in the philosophy of science in practice, focusing on detailed and systematic studies of scientific practices — neither dismissing concerns about truth and rationality, nor ignoring contextual and pragmatic factors.

We welcome contributions from philosophers, historians and sociologists of science, practicing scientists, and any others with an interest in philosophical questions regarding scientific practice. We strive for quality, variety, innovation, and diversity in accepted abstracts.

Poster formats

Poster submissions must include a title, an abstract of 500 words, full affiliation details, and contact information for the presenter(s). Please specify [Poster] in the title of your poster, so that it can be clearly distinguished from paper/symposium submissions.

If you are wondering how to design your poster or to prepare your poster presentation, we found the PSA2016 and Daily Nous websites helpful.

Poster submission

All proposals should be submitted online through the OpenConf system.

Our policy regarding multiple submissions to SPSP 2024 does not apply to poster abstracts: A presenting author on a contributed paper or participating in a symposium may also submit one poster abstract on a substantially different topic.

We will announce decisions on abstract proposals on an ongoing basis, usually within four weeks after submission.

Reminder: Please specify [Poster] in the title of your poster abstract, and follow the other formatting requirements stated above.

Submission deadline (extended): 26 February 2024
