The International Social Philosophy Conference is held each year in a different location. The conference provides a collegial environment for the sharing of professional work in social philosophy, broadly conceived. Themes for the conference range from the sociological to the ethical to the political (and the economic and legal). A selection of papers presented at each meetings is subsequently prepared for publication in the conference series Social Philosophy Today.
