2015 Australasian Philosophy Postgraduate Conference (APPC).

    The APPC provides the opportunity for postgraduate students from
    Australasia to present their work, debate their ideas, receive feedback
    from peers and form collaborations across institutions.

    For over two decades, APPCs have included discussions with other graduates,
    meetings with successful philosophers, career seminars and/or publishing
    workshops (e.g. with the editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy).
    Recent conferences have been held in Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne.

    A successful bid will likely contain a budget with an indication of
    expected fund sources, a conference planning timeline, and brief details of
    local facilities (including accommodation options). Bidders are encouraged
    to be both realistic and creative with their bids.
    Our comprehensive APPC Hosting Guide can be sent upon request, and we are
    happy to assist organisers with any further questions that they might have.

    Bids for the 2014 APPC close September 27th. We aim to announce the
    successful bidder at the 2013 APPC hosted by the University of Melbourne
    4th – 6th of October.

    If you are interested in hosting the 2014 or 2015 APPC, or would like any
    further information about hosting an APPC, please contact Tessa Jones ( For any general comments about the PGSC please
