More PPUPA info...

This is the letter i received from the guy who is coordinating the conference.

Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce the speaker of the conference this year will be Jennifer Woodrow from University of Alberta. The conference dates are set for the 21st and 22nd. Professor Woodrow will be presenting a paper on Luck Control and Epistemic Responsibility.

If you could return an e-mail to me letting me know that your departments have recieved the notice about the conference that would be very useful. Also, if your departments or clubs intend to come an RSVP would be very helpful and probably needed in by the end of the month.

There will be a registration fee for the conference to help pay for it and to supply lovely trays of snack and lunch food as well as some refreshments. This will likely be between $10-$15 depending on the attendance (this is another thing RSVP would help me to figure out)

Last thing of all to note is that there is still plenty of room for papers to be presented so if you have students interested in presentation then please remind them or suggest to them to contact me at either this e-mail address or Papers are still welcomed!

Anyways, that is the update on the conference. I hope all is well with the rest of you and hope to hear from you soon.

Phil Papers

David Chalmers has constructed an online database of all things philosophical on the interwebs. It's called 'PhilPapers' and it is awesome. This is a real service to the profession and a game-changing research tool. I highly recommend everyone check it out!
