Details of Conferences
Numbers: Based on the data from previous conferences, and number of papers submitted this year we are expecting around 100-300-60 delegates at the events listed above.
Programmes: The BSPS conference programme comprises three plenary sessions and three sets of open sessions. All events are held in UCD’s Newman Building. The Joint Session’s programme will follow the usual format. All plenary sessions will be “non-parallel”, and will run on Friday afternoon, in UCD O’Reilly Hall, and on Saturday and Sunday mornings and evenings in UCD Newman Building. The Graduate and Open sessions will run on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Due to unprecedented demand, this year, we have allocated c. 170 slots to the parallel sessions. The details of the programmes are available from the conference webpage.
Position of Publishers
The publisher’s stands will be located in the concourse of Newman Building in UCD, the main venue of all the conferences. You will be positioned near the main lecture hall, in the area where coffee will be served. This arrangement is expected to increase substantially the visibility of exhibitor’s stands, and the possibility of interaction between publishers’ representatives and delegates. The concourse is spacious and we can offer as many tables as required. However, the area is open to all those entering the Newman Building, hence, we ask you to ensure that the stands are attended at all times. Representatives can, if they wish, pack the displayed products into boxes that will be stored in a room that stays locked overnight. For unmanned tables, at an additional charge of £50 per table, you can hire personnel who will be responsible for the security of the exhibited products.
There have been no increases in the rates charged in 2008

- Please fill in the Publishers’ Exhibition Form for the dates you wish to attend and enclose a cheque payable to UCD Philosophy Conferences. Download Publishers’ Exhibition Form here
- Please fill in the online Joint Session (and BSPS) booking form for every person who will be attending the conferences. Please note that the registration fee in 2010 covers delegate packs, coffee breaks and venue hire for the conference wine reception. The hire of lecture theatres has been subsidised by a grant from UCD Seed Funding. We, therefore, are not in a position to give a discount to publisher’s representatives attending the conference.
- The event traditionally attended by most delegates throughout the three conferences is the Drinks Reception following the Inaugural Lecture of the Joint Session on Friday evening. If you would like to sponsor this, or any other event, in the course of these conferences, then please get in touch.
I hope that this information will help you to make plans for July. We want to welcome many publishers to University College Dublin for these conferences and I hope that you can attend.
If you have any questions on these matters, then please just email me at the address below.
