2020 Conference – Abstract Submission

Due to the current restrictions and uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 measures, it has been decided to postpone the 2020 OZSW Annual Conference, which was due to take place on 11-12 December 2020, at Tilburg University.

The conference will now take place at Tilburg, in the winter of 2021 (exact date, and further details to the be announced in due course).

So that Dutch-based philosophers will still have the opportunity to present their research and build community networks this year, in place of the traditional format of the annual conference the OZSW will be offering a smaller-scale online alternative. This digital conference will take place on the same dates as the annual conference was originally planned (11-12th December, 2020). More details and a call for abstracts will be announced shortly.


The OZSW will be inviting submissions for individual papers, symposia, and posters in all areas of philosophy. The program committee will strive for quality, variety, and diversity within the program. We encourage abstracts (350-500 words) to be submitted early, and when you submit an abstract after 1st June, we will do our best to notify you of our decision within four weeks. We will notify all speakers by 30th September. All submissions should be in English.

  • Proposals for individual papers: Please submit your proposal consisting of a 350-500 word abstract in pdf format, prepared for blind review. Papers will be allocated 30 minutes (including discussion).
  • Symposium proposals: Symposia will be allocated 90 minutes, including discussion. They can have any format. Submit your proposal in pdf format, prepared for blind review. Symposia proposals should include the symposium title, a description of the symposium’s rationale (up to 500 words) and the title and abstract of each of the individual presentations that will constitute the session.
  • Proposal for posters: Please submit your proposal for a poster in pdf format, and prepare for blind review. The proposal should consist of a 350-500 word abstract, indicating the structure that will appear on your poster. Posters will be presented during a dedicated poster presentation session. During the keynote sessions, poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present a 1-minute pitch of their poster to the audience of the conference.
