Revised Jan. 2017
29th annual CPP conference
St. Bonaventure University
Oct. 13-16, Thursday- Sunday
Conference Theme: Pacifism, Politics, and Feminism
Anyone wishing to present a paper at the annual Concerned Philosophers for Peace conference should send an electronic copy of an abstract of that paper to Barry L. Gan at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 1, 2016, but abstracts are certainly welcome before that date. Decisions regarding acceptance of papers will be made on a rolling basis, but all decisions will be complete by September 10.
I would welcome volunteers to assist in reviewing the abstracts. Please let me know if you are interested.
Also, I am in the process of identifying and confirming a couple of keynote speakers. Some of you have already offered suggestions to me. I would welcome more suggestions as I follow up on those submitted so far.
Here is some additional information on the conference:
The dates of the 29th annual conference are Oct. 13-16, Thursday through Sunday. Details will be forthcoming as plans for the conference proceed. Please mark your calendars to keep these dates open.
St. Bonaventure University is not located near any major airports. The closest airport is Buffalo, NY, seventy miles away. Rochester is 100 miles away. It is also possible to fly into Bradford, PA, which is only 25 miles away, or Erie, PA, which is 100 miles away. Buffalo tends to be the most convenient airport, and we will arrange shuttle trips to and from that airport though some of us may find it more convenient to rent cars and share rides with others. We are a 3.5-hour drive from both Cleveland and Pittsburgh, and two-and-a-half hours from Binghamton, should anyone know where that is.
Three hotels are located within walking distance of the campus (1/4 mile to one mile away). The closest is the Fairfield Inn and Suites. Also close is Microtel Inn and Suites, and slightly farther away (perhaps ¾ of a mile) is the Best Western Plus University Inn. The Best Western and Fairfield Inn each have a swimming pool and hot tub.
Finally, here is some information (incomplete with respect to the Fairfield Inn) on hotel availability for the conference.
