The Australasian Postgraduate Committee takes responsibility for scheduling the annual Australasian Postgraduate Philosophy Conference (APPC) and maintaining networks amongst postgraduate philosophers.

APPC 2024

The AAP postgraduate committee would like to welcome bids to host the 2024 Australasian Philosophy Postgraduate Conference (APPC).

The APPC allows postgraduate students from Australasia to present their work, debate their ideas, receive feedback from peers and form collaborations across institutions. It also presents an opportunity for postgraduate students from a chosen institution to organise this fantastic event to build their skill set, enhance their academic CV and contribute to the important landscape of Australasian philosophy.

We are looking for a group of dedicated postgraduate students from an Australasian university to form an organising committee to bring this event to life.

The 2023 APPC was successfully hosted by the University of Western Australia’s dedicated organising committee, marking an excellent return to an on-campus experience. For those who are interested in hosting, you can view their website below for great insight into some of the requirements 

You can find further information about the hosting requirements and expectations in our 2024 APPC Hosting Guide. We encourage any questions to be sent to our contact email address,

The submission deadline for this event has been extended to 8 March 2024.
