The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport invites the submission of abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 50th annual IAPS meeting and essays for the 2023 R. Scott Kretchmar Student Essay Award. The conference will be jointly hosted by the University of Zagreb and University of Split in Split, Croatia and organised by Professor Matija Škerbić and his team. The conference venue is the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Hotel, Split, Croatia
The conference will be primarily in person but there will be opportunity for some online presentations as well as recorded Keynotes available to watch remotely.
Abstracts are welcome on any area of philosophy of sport (broadly construed), including metaphysics, epistemology, aesthetics, and ethics, and from any theoretical approach, including analytic philosophy and critical theory. While IAPS recognizes, values, and encourages interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies, acceptance is contingent on the philosophical content of the project. Emerging scholars are encouraged to submit works in progress.
Deadline for abstract submission is 27 March, 2023. Contributors will be notified about the status of their abstracts by 5 May, 2023.
Proposals for round table and panel discussions, including a tentative list of participants, are also welcome and should be directed towards the IAPS Conference Chair, Emily Ryall (email@example.com).
