OFA9 – Graduate Workshop

12-13 September 2013,

Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon

Attendance is free, but registration is required. Just send an email to ofaworkshop AT gmail DOT com.



Call for Abstracts (NOW CLOSED)

This call for abstracts is directed at all graduate students and researchers who have obtained their PhDs in philosophy within the last 2 years. All submitted abstracts must be in English or Portuguese, in the analytic tradition (broadly construed), with no further restrictions as regards topics or areas. Final papers will have a short presentation at the workshop (25 minutes), followed by a commentary (10 minutes) and an open discussion (40 minutes).

All papers are pre-read, to maximise time for discussion. Speakers will presuppose that all participants have read the relevant material.

Contributed Papers

Authors should send an abstract of 1500 words (where the thesis defended and the arguments backing them up should be clearly stated). Abstracts must be submitted at:


Abstracts should be arranged for blind anonymous review. Abstracts containing self-identifying references (name, citations, publications, acknowledgements or meta-data) will be disregarded. Information about authors should be indicated on a separate title page including title of the paper, author’s full name, e-mail address and affiliation. The selection will be carried out by the members of our scientific committee and authors will be informed by email of the final decisions (see deadlines bellow). If the abstract is accepted, the author must send the final paper to be presented at the workshop by 30 July 2013.

Note: Authors may also express their interest to participate as commentators.


Those interested in participating as commentators should send their data (name, e- mail address, affiliation and a short CV) to < ofaworkshop AT gmail.com >. A description of the main areas of philosophy they are interested in will also be required.


Submitted abstracts will be accepted until 30 April 2013. The result of the selection process will be communicated to the authors by mid June 2013. Speakers must send the final version of their papers before 30 July 2013.


OFA (Oficina de Filosofia Analítica) is a graduate workshop in analytic philosophy, broadly contrued. OFA’s main goal is to provide a stimulating environment for graduate students and recent post-docs to present and discuss their research. OFA accepts submissions from Portuguese researchers, researchers based in Portugal, and from international researchers. OFA aims to reinforce the academic links between the Portuguese and the international community of researchers in philosophy, contributing to their training and raising their standing in the overall international scene.

OFA is co-organized by the Portuguese Philosophy Society (SPF) and the Portuguese Society for Analytic Philosophy (SPFA) since 2006. From 2012, the LanCog research group joined the two societies in its organization.
