The August 23rd proposal submission deadline for the Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology’s 2013 Annual Meeting is approaching. The conference will be held at Utah Valley University, October 31-November 2, with the theme, “The Atonement.” For a fuller discussion of the theme and submission information, see the Call for Papers flyer (PDF), or the Call for Papers web page.

Student Travel Funding:

SMPT has some funding available, on a competitive basis, to defray travel costs for student presenters. Travel funding awards of a value up to $700 each will be made on the basis of (a) merit of the proposal and (b) distance of travel to Orem. Students interested in travel support should indicate their institution, degree sought, and subject at the time of paper/proposal submission, and should provide a brief statement of need, including their point of origin for travel to the conference, major mode of transportation (e.g. air, train, personal vehicle) to Orem, and availability of travel funding from other sources, such as their home department, if any.

    Hey, thanks for this notice. I’ve got something to submit, if I can find the time after all the other commitments to throw together a proposal.

    Whats the basic schedule of the conference? Meaning is it all day thursday and friday and saturday? Or just part of thursday and all day friday?

    The past few years we have usually started Thursday afternoon and run through around 5pm Saturday, including evening sessions Thursday and Friday. The exact time frame will depend partly on the number of submissions, but it’s likely to follow that general pattern.
