Papers are invited for the 2012 annual conference of the British Society for Ethical Theory, to be held at the University of Stirling, following directly on from the Joint Session. The subject area is open within metaethics and normative ethics. Papers on topics in applied ethics, moral psychology or the history of ethics may also be considered provided they are also of wider theoretical interest.
Papers, which should be unpublished at the time of submission, should be in English, no longer than 6500 words, readable in 45 minutes and prepared for blind review.

Please send your anonymous submission electronically, and include an abstract. In a separate document list your full name, address and academic affiliation. Those who submitted papers for our previous conferences – successfully or otherwise – are welcome to submit again, although not the same papers.
BSET operates a system whereby the papers will have all identifications removed BEFORE being sent to our Chief Referee, who contacts other referees and finalizes the program. The one exception to this is the identification of postgraduate status. Please tell us if you are a postgraduate student as submissions from
postgraduates are encouraged; we aim to have at least one graduate speak at the conference.
Selected conference papers will be considered for publication in the journal Ethical Theory and Moral Practice. Please make clear in any covering email whether you intend your paper to be considered for publication here as well as for the conference programme, although final decision on this matter need not be made by the author until the time of the conference itself.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 9th December 2011.
Papers and accompanying particulars should be emailed to the contact email on the following page:
Note that ONLY electronic submissions will be accepted.
