Call for Abstracts: International Association for the Philosophy of Sport

The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport (IAPS) has announced the Call for Abstracts for the next annual conference. Below is the announcement:

The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport invites the submission of abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 51st annual IAPS meeting on the 21st – 23rd August 2024 and essays for the 2024 R. Scott Kretchmar Student Essay Award. The conference will be held at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada and will be hosted by former IAPS President, Charlene Weaving. The link to information about the location can be found here:

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. You may also submit suggestions for roundtable discussions or workshops.

Deadline for abstract submission is 1st April 2024. Contributors will be notified about the status of their abstracts by 27 May, 2024.

We are using the Cvent system this year to submit abstracts and student essays. Whilst we hope the process will provide a smooth integration with the conference website itself, there may be some issues as we get used to administrating it. Please bear with us if this is the case.
