35 papers, divided between plenary and general concurrent sessions, will be presented and commented on. Talks by Christopher Preston, Katie McShane, Kevin Elliott, Sarah Wright, Chris Diehm, and many others, with a keynote adress by Ned Hettinger, Professor of Philosophy at College of Charleston.

The 11th annual meeting returns to the Highlands Center in Allenspark, on the border of the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, USA.  The Highlands Center is a retreat center that includes rooms, meeting space, and a cafeteria.  Longs Peak (elev. 14259 feet/4346 meters) hovers above the conference center and is within hiking distance.

Sessions are organized in a workshop-style format in order to maximize time for in-depth discussion of each participant’s paper by the entire group. Attendees are encouraged to read papers, available below, prior the start of each session.

Wednesday afternoon will be free so that participants can relax or explore the area with group hikes scheduled. We will have dinner at Dunraven Inn in Estes Park Thursday evening.

We have reserved 24 rooms, each of which comfortably houses one to three guests.  In addition, camping facilities are available nearby at Rocky Mountain National Park. Participants and attendees, including those not staying at the Highlands Center, need to pre-purchase meals and the conference dinner. Room and meal reservations can be made by clicking the registration link below.
