Call for papers

The Society for the Advancement of Philosophy and the Institute of Philosophy – Zagreb are organizing the ZAGREB APPLIED ETHICS CONFERENCE 2019 (ZAEC 2019), from 26 to 28 June 2019, in Zagreb, Croatia. As always, the aim of the conference is to gather philosophers and scholars from other disciplines primarily, but not exclusively, from Central and Southeastern Europe who will present papers on various topics in contemporary applied ethics, ranging from particular case studies to more general (foundational and methodological) considerations. In keeping with the intention to promote rational and critical approach to, and public understanding of, the work in applied ethics, we encourage clearly structured submissions adhering to the principles of conceptual rigor, soundness of argumentation and scientific accuracy. We have the pleasure to announce that the plenary lecture at the conference will be given by Professor David Benatar (Department of Philosophy – University of Cape Town). This does not imply, of course, that all paper submissions need to be related to Professor Benatar’s work. As already mentioned: submissions on a variety of topics are welcome.

We invite you to participate in the conference with a paper presentation no longer than 20 minutes (each presentation will be followed by 10 minutes discussion). If you wish to present a paper in the conference, please fill in the Application Form and send it to no later than 1 April 2019. Notification of acceptance will be sent to authors by 15 April 2019. The official language of the conference is English. The participation fee for authors of accepted papers will be EUR 35.
