ZAGREB APPLIED ETHICS CONFERENCE 2013 / ZAGREBAČKA KONFERENCIJA O PRIMIJENJENOJ ETICI
ZAGREB, CROATIA 12-14 JUNE 2013 / ZAGREB, HRVATSKA 12-14. LIPNJA 2013.
Zagreb Applied Ethics Conference 2013 is the most recent in the series of international philosophical conferences organized by the Society for the Advancement of Philosophy and the Center for Croatian Studies of the University of Zagreb. Furthermore, it is the second conference devoted to applied ethics (the first one took place in 2011) and both institutions plan to continue organizing it on a biennial basis.
As announced in the call for papers, one of the aims of this year’s conference is to gather philosophers and other scholars primarily, but not exclusively, from Central and Southeastern Europe who will present their papers on various topics in applied ethics, ranging from particular case studies to more general (foundational and methodological) issues. The other, no less important, aim of the conference is to promote a rational and critical approach to applied ethics that adheres to the principles of conceptual rigor, soundness of argumentation and scientific accuracy. Based on the final program, we are confident that this year’s conference will accomplish both aims.
Three plenary lectures and 23 presentations by experts in ethics and applied ethics from 16 different countries (Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Croatia) will be delivered. The quality of the contributed papers also seems unquestionable – they were carefully selected from a large number of high quality submissions many of which, unfortunately, had to be rejected due to the limited time frame of the conference. In brief, we are confident that a stimulating philosophical conference with dynamic discussions is awaiting us.
