The Fourth Annual Long Island High School Philosophy Conference will take place on November 11 from 9:30-3:30. Proposals are now being accepted for papers to be presented at the conference. The theme of the conference is “Philosophy of Mind: Artificial Intelligence and the Problem of Consciousness.” The keynote address and other aspects of the conference will focus on metaphysical, ethical, and political questions connected with artificial intelligence. Student presentations on the conference theme will be given preference, but proposals from all branches of philosophy are welcome. Group presentations are also welcome, as are creative projects such as films, posters, debates, and dramatic performances.
Please submit an abstract of your proposed paper or project, no longer than 200 words, to a teacher at your school attending the conference. Your teacher will submit accepted abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30th. If no teacher at your school is attending the conference, feel free to submit your abstract directly to email@example.com. Submissions will only be accepted from high school students in grades 9-12.
Papers should be tailored for a 20-minute presentation and should be a maximum of 8-10 pages double-spaced.
