ESA Conference 2013


European Society for Aesthetics Conference 2013 

Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, 17 – 19 June 2013

Submission deadline: 31st of January, 2013

The European Society for Aesthetics would like to invite you to submit a paper for presentation at the ESA Conference 2013. The conference will be co-organised by the ESA and the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague and will take place in Prague from the 17th of June (morning) until the 19th of June 2013 (evening)

Keynote speakers:

•             Paolo D’Angelo (Università degli Studi Roma Tre)

•             Tomáš Hlobil (Univerzita Karlova v Praze)

•             Maria Elisabeth Reicher-Marek (Philosophisches Institut der RWTH Aachen)

We are inviting papers from all traditions and on any topic in philosophical aesthetics, and both systematic and historical presentations are welcome. We encourage the presentation of papers in English, but submissions in other major European languages will be considered equally. For each talk, there will be time for a 30-minute presentation, with about another 30 minutes designated for discussion. All accepted papers would be eligible for publication in the proceedings of the ESA. (

We prefer the submission of full papers of about 3000-4000 words, combined with a short abstract. Alternatively, it is also possible to send in longer abstracts of a minimal length of 800 words, which present not only the main ideas and claims of the paper, but also sketch its chief considerations and arguments in favour of them. Please use the PDF-file format for submission and render your text completely anonymous, allowing for blind refereeing. To submit your paper, please use the EasyChair online submission system (first-time users will be asked to register with EasyChair).

We also encourage all submitters to sign up as members of the ESA (which is free):

The deadline for submissions of papers is the 31st of January 2013, and we aim to inform you about the result of our selection process by the end of February 2013.

Further information about the conference will soon be available on ESA website.
