Members of the International Plato Society wishing to read a paper at the Symposium should submit two-page (600-700 words) abstract on any aspect of the dialogue. Since the selection of papers will be based on the Executive Committee's estimation of the contents of the abstract, it is recommended that it be written with a fair amount of care and in such a way as to give a clear indication of the line of argument that the finished paper will be pursuing. Abstracts may be written in one of the five working languages of the Society (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish).
The abstracts should be sent, preferably by e-mail as regular text (no attachment) to the above address or by fax to Prof. Samuel Scolnicov, Department of Philosophy, at the above number. Please indicate the preferred format: plenary (45 minutes) or parallel session (20 minutes). It should be noted that acceptance of a paper for the Symposium is no guarantee of its inclusion in the volume to be published by Akademia Verlag.
The second day of the Symposium will be held in memory of Trevor Saunders. There will be an invited lecture and contributed papers.
The participation fee will be US$ 150. This includes all the activities of the Symposium as well as the papers to be read and the final volume of selected papers. Graduate students will pay US$ 60, and will not be entitled to the final volume.
