FSI Conference 2010: Call for papers

You are invited to attend the 2nd annual conference and AGM of the Free Society Institute, co-hosted by the International Humanist and Ethical Union. This message serves as an announcement and call for papers for the workshop, to be held on September 11th in Cape Town, from 09h00 to 17h00, at a venue to be determined at a later date.

The theme of this year’s conference is:

Good without god: is a secular viewpoint our best guide to moral clarity?

While the theme intends to suggest a specific focus on moral matters, abstracts dealing with related areas will also be considered (for example, a secular viewpoint as conducing to clarity in politics and science).

If you are interested in presenting a talk at the event, please send an abstract of 300 words describing your paper to Jacques Rousseau by August 2. Submissions will be considered by the organisers, and a preliminary programme will be available on this website by 16 August 2010. To register to attend (speakers and non-speakers alike), please visit this link. There is no charge for registration and attendance.
