How to Participate

In the interest of maximizing the possible diversity of opinion, and encouraging interest in our conference, we are soliciting abstracts for posters or short talks. Entrants of all post-graduate scholarly levels are welcome. We hope to receive applications which show strong engagement with the ideas presented above, either from a theoretical philosophical or psychological standpoint, or from a practical treatment or counseling standpoint.

If you wish to participate as a regular attendee, please click here.

If you wish to participate with a presentation, please email us with an abstract of 300 words or less for your talk or poster.

  • Posters: posters should be 90cm x 120cm. Funding for printing may be available.
  • Short talks: Each short presentation’s format will be 4 minutes speech followed by 3 minutes of questions and answers. These talks will all be rapidly given one after the other during an hour of one of the day’s talks. The intention behind the short talks is to ferment a lot of ideas, very quickly.

Abstracts should be sent to by the 15th of April 2019. Abstract submissions are now closed.
