Third European Pragmatism Conference

Venue and organizers

The third European Pragmatism Conference will take place at the University of Helsinki, Finland, in 13-15 June 2018.

The conference is organized by the Nordic Pragmatism Network in collaboration with Associazione Pragma (Italy), Pragmata (France), the Central European Pragmatist Forum and the European Pragmatism Association.

Programme and Call for Panels

The conference programme will consist of half-day, four-speaker panels. A call for panels will be opened on 15 September and closes on 15 November 2017. In addition, a limited number of panels will be reserved for individual papers from a separate CFP. We expect to announce the results of the calls by 5 January 2018.

The organizers hope to receive proposals with a coherent theme and a clear description of the contribution of the panel presentations to the field of research. To promote European research and collaboration, the organizers strongly recommend that the number of non-European (not affiliated with a European institution) speakers on a panel is limited to one.

Further information will be made available on this webpage.


Registration to the conference will be available beginning in January 2018. Registration is free of charge. The conference does not provide funds to cover participants’ expenses.
