CALL FOR PAPERS: 2015 Southwest Regional EPS Conference

Conference Theme: Creation and the Philosophy of Nature

at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans, LA
April 10-11, 2015

The Southwest Regional Evangelical Philosophical Society invites submissions addressing the topic of Creation and the Philosophy of Nature. While submissions concerning the conference theme will be given preference, submissions concerning any topic of philosophy, philosophical theology, or analytic theology are welcome and will be considered.

To submit a paper for the conference, an abstract of approximately 350 words should be sent to Dr. Greg Trickett at gtrickett@wc.edu. Participants will have approximately 30 minutes to present their papers followed by 10 minutes for Q&A.

The deadline for submissions is March 1st. Notifications will be emailed as soon as possible after the submission deadline.

The plenary speakers are Dr. John Walton (Wheaton College) and Dr. Sandra Richter (Wheaton College). Registration is through the ETS and an overview of the conference and (eventually) registration information can be accessed here. Please note that the submission deadline and process on the etsjets page is for ETS, and may not reflect the EPS deadline or guidelines. Submissions for EPS should follow the guidelines above.

If you will need media support (audio, video, PowerPoint, etc.) indicate what you will need in your proposal. All papers will be recorded and presenters given a copy of their presentation. Awards will be given to student-presenters for outstanding papers. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the 2015 Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum in Faith and Culture (www.greerheard.com). Cost for the conference is $35, which includes Saturday lunch and Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum registration.

We look forward to reading your submissions and seeing you in April for a wonderful time of fellowship and academic discussion.
