The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport (IAPS) is committed to stimulate, encourage, and promote research, scholarship, and teaching in the philosophy of sport and related practices. It publishes the Journal of the Philosophy of Sport, the leading journal for contemporary philosophic thought with regard to sport. IAPS members are found all over the world and constitute a growing and vibrant international community of scholars and teachers. More information on IAPS can be found at www.iaps.net.
The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport invites the submission of abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 43rd annual 2015 IAPS meeting and essays for the 2015 R. Scott Kretchmar Student Essay Award. The conference will be held September 2–5, 2015 in Cardiff, Wales, sponsored by Cardiff Metropolitan University.
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. Guidelines for abstracts and submission instructions are including below. 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, John Gleaves at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for abstract submission is April 14, 2015. A Program Committee of three IAPS peers will blind review abstracts. Contributors will be notified about the status of their abstracts by May 19, 2015. All conference presenters shall register for and attend the conference to have their paper included on the conference program. Presenters must also be members of IAPS (either student or full). New members may register for IAPS membership at the following www.iaps.net/join-iaps/.
