It is time to start pre-planning for CO4! There are exciting things in the works for the invited portion of the conference but since they are not finalized I cannot announce them yet. I will make an announcement when I can.
Last year I started a test program of having people organize special sessions, with the result being Jacob Berger’s excellent session featuring Benj Hellie with commentary by Susanna Schellenberg, Jeff Speaks, Jacob Berger, and Heather Logue. I would like to do more like this for CO4. To that end I have already accepted a proposal from James Dow to organize a special session on “The Social Conditions of Self-Consciousness,” and I would like to take this opportunity to announce a general call for proposals to organize special sessions. If you have a proposal please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the theme and possible participants.
