CALL FOR PAPERS: 2015 Far West Regional EPS Conference

Conference Theme: Reformation in the Wings

California Baptist University
Riverside, CA
April 10, 2015

The Far West Regional Evangelical Philosophical Society invites submissions addressing the topic "Reformation in the Wings." 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.

Once again, we should have up 4-6 EPS parallel sessions available to us at the ETS Far West Regional Conference, to be held at California Baptist University, in Riverside, CA, on Friday, April 10, 2015, from 1—8 pm.

I would like to encourage having a good range of faculty and student presentations.

1. Paper proposals may be on any philosophical topic of interest to Christian philosophers, theologians, or biblical studies scholars. If you have a paper on a theme closely related to the ETS conference theme, that would be appreciated.
2. Please submit a short abstract (no more than 200 words) of your paper to scott.smith@biola.edu, BY FEB 1, 2015. Please just write it in the body of an e-mail message.

3. Sessions are limited to 40 minutes, so please plan on taking no longer than 25-30 minutes to read your paper (i.e., about 12-15 pages, double-spaced). We want to have time for questions and answers.

The conference schedule and registration info will be posted once the submitted papers are accepted.

The ETS theme is: "Reformation in the Wings." Dr Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School at Samford University, will be the ETS plenary speaker. There will be an optional banquet after the parallel sessions are over.

Note: If your proposal is accepted, you still will need to register for the conference through ETS.
