Interdisciplinary submissions, and contributions from researchers in disciplines other than philosophy, are welcome.

PeirceCongress2014@gmail.com

It will greatly facilitate the work of the Program Committee if you use this exact wording and replace the blank with your name.

B. File Format: All files submitted must be in .doc, .docx or .rtf format. They must be double-spaced, with no headers or footers (except for pagination), and use Times New Roman 12 point font.
