We are thrilled to announce that this will be the FOURTH REGIONAL version of our Annual SLCC Student Philosophical Conference! The conference will consist of a one-hour plenary session featuring our keynote speaker Dr. Charlie Huenemann then a two-hour panel session. We are currently seeking undergraduate students to present papers at these breakout panels. These panels will be conducted and moderated by SLCC and/or visiting professors. Each student will read their paper (maximum of 15 minutes), after which a discussion/Q & A will take place.

Because we want to include as many participants as possible, we hope to have 5-7 papers presented at each panel. Additionally, the papers may be broader in scope than just Friedrich alone and need not be exclusive to our conference (enabling students to present at more than one conference). The deadlines are as follows: October 1, 2011 for Abstracts and October 31, 2011 for final papers. (Please email your completed Paper Submission Form to SLCCPhilosophyConference.)
