CALL FOR BIDS to host The Australasian Philosophy Postgraduate Conference - Extended Deadline

14 Oct 2013 1:55 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
The AAP Postgraduate Steering Committee (PGSC) is now welcoming proposals
from postgraduates from any institution in Australia, New Zealand, and
Singapore with postgraduate philosophy programmes to organize and host the
next Australasian Philosophy Postgraduate Conference (APPC). The Call for
Bids deadline has been extended, and now closes December 1, 2013.

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 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 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.

If you are interested in submitting a Bid, or would like any further
information about hosting an APPC, please contact Tessa Jones ( or Paul Daniels (

Be well,
Paul Daniels
