There will be two kinds of parallel sessions. Half of the sessions will be organized by the coordinators of the various seminars (werkgroepen) of the Netherlands School for Research in Practical Philosophy, and will focus on specific themes in practical philosophy.

The other sessions will be devoted to papers received in response to this call for papers, and may address any topic within practical philosophy (broadly conceived). Deadline for submission of abstracts for these sessions is July 1, 2010. Please send your abstract of no more than 500 words in the body of an email message to with subject “Conference Abstract.” Notification of acceptance will be sent by July 15.
