Call for Abstracts/Papers/Commentators
(Revised) Deadline: November 20, 2015
Conference: Aristotelian Themes in Metaphysics and Koslicki Book Workshop
April 29th-May 1st
2016
Boğaziçi University 
Istanbul, Turkey
We are seeking extended abstracts (600-900 words) or papers (suitable for 30-40 minute presentations) related to themes in Aristotle’s metaphysics (e.g. substance, substrata, hylomorphism, essentialism, metaphysical categories, etc.), very broadly construed, for a two- to three-day international conference at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey.
One day will be a workshop on Kathrin Koslicki’s new book manuscript, Form, Matter, Substance,
while the other day(s) will be devoted to talks and commentary on Aristotelian themes. Please prepare your abstract or paper in a format suitable for blind review.
In addition, we need commentators for papers and Koslicki’s manuscript chapters. If you wish to be a commentator, or chair, please let us know by November 20. If you would like to comment on a chapter of Koslicki’s ms, please email your request to marksteen[at-symbol]gmail.com. The decisions about who will comment will be made by November 30, and the decisions about whose papers/abstracts are accepted will be made at the latest by December 15, but likely earlier. Commentators will receive their material to comment on by January 31st, and  comments are due by April 15. Once the final list of commentators is selected, we will begin a procedure of determining/negotating who will comment on which portions of the manuscript.
Abstracts or papers are due November 20.
Volunteering or commenting deadline: November 20.
Send all anonymized submissions to metaphysicstanbul[at-symbol]gmail.com
Send all inquiries and volunteer offers (for commenting/chairing) to marksteen[at-symbol]gmail.com
Confirmed Speaker: Professor Kathrin Koslicki (Alberta)
All are welcome. While registration is not strictly speaking required, it would be helpful to us, for organizing purposes, if you registered by merely indicating that you will attend by contacting us via marksteen[at-symbol]gmail.com. Registration is free, but airfare, lodging and meals (except for one dinner, and continental breakfasts) are not covered. Affordable lodging is likely available–email Mark Steen for information.
Submissions and volunteering by women, minorities, graduate students, and independent scholars are strongly encouraged. We will adhere to guidelines as suggested at the Gendered Conference Campaign.
