CALL FOR TENDERS TO HOST THE 2017 AUSTRALASIAN POSTGRADUATE PHILOSOPHY
The Postgraduate Committee to the AAP is welcoming proposals from
postgraduates from any institution in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore
with postgraduate philosophy programmes to organise and host the 2017
Australasian Postgraduate Philosophy Conference (APPC).
ABOUT THE APPC
The APPC is usually a three-day conference and provides the opportunity for
postgraduate students from Australasia to present their work, debate their
ideas, receive feedback from peers and form collaborations across
institutions. Hosting the conference provides the opportunity to gain
valuable experience in conference organisation and committee management as
well as promoting your university's philosophy program. 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 Canberra, Adelaide, Sydney and Auckland.
A successful bid will justify their selection of the conference dates and
will likely contain a budget with an indication of expected funding
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 2017 APPC close
December 31st. Bidders are not restricted to groups from a single
university and it may be helpful in terms of funding sources and organising
resources to link up with others from local institutions.
If you are interested in hosting the 2017 APPC, or would like any further
information about hosting an APPC, including the APPC Hosting Guide, please
contact Toby Solomon (toby.solomon at anu.edu.au).
