1st European Experimental Philosophy Conference 2021

1st European Experimental Philosophy Conference 2021

Charles University, Prague, June 17-19, 2021 (online)

Experimental philosophy groups active all around Europe have agreed to join forces and establish a model of one big annual European experimental philosophy event. Last year we had to go online and move the first official event to 2021. The Faculty of Science of Charles University, the Institute of Philosophy, the Institute of State and Law and the Institute of Computer Science of the Czech Academy of Sciences (the founding institutions of the Karel Čapek Center for Values in Science and Technology), and the University of Zurich are proud to host the 1st Xphi Europe in June 2021.

The conference was originally planned to be a hybrid event taking place from 17th till 19th June, 2021 at the Charles University, Prague, Czechia, and online. Given the fact that the Covid-19 situation is very serious at the moment (especially in the Czech Republic) and that we are not able to predict whether it will be possible to host any event in June at the Faculty of Science, Charles University (which is now completely closed for students), the organizers have decided to move the conference completely online. Thus, no physical presence at the conference will be possible and a purely online version of the conference will take place at the originally planned dates, i.e. 17th-19th June 2021. Our website will be regularly updated for any news.

We believe moving the conference online is still a fantastic alternative in order to share all our research within and beyond the XPhi community and that it will be at least as successful as the Online XPhi Europe Conference we organised last year.
