Call of Bids for 2016 APPC

27 Jan 2016 8:54 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Postgraduate Committee to the AAP is welcoming proposals from postgraduates from any institution in Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore with postgraduate philosophy programmes to organise and host the 2016 Australasian Philosophy Postgraduate Conference (APPC).


The APPC is usually a three-day conference and provides the opportunity for postgraduate students from Australasia to present their work, debate their ideas, receive feedback from peers and form collaborations across institutions. For over two decades, APPCs have included discussions with other graduates, meetings with successful philosophers, career seminars and/or publishing workshops (e.g. with the editor of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy). Recent conferences have been held in Adelaide, Sydney and Auckland.


A successful bid will justify their selection of the conference dates and will likely contain a budget with an indication of expected fund sources, a conference planning timeline, and brief details of local facilities (including accommodation options). Bidders are encouraged to be both realistic and creative with their bids. Our comprehensive APPC Hosting Guide can be sent upon request, and we are happy to assist organisers with any further questions that they might have. Bids for the 2016 APPC close March 31st.


If you are interested in hosting the 2016 APPC, or would like any further information about hosting an APPC, including the APPC Hosting Guide, please contact Jarrah Aubourg (
