The Society for the Advancement of Philosophy and Center for Croatian Studies of the University of Zagreb invite you to participate with a paper presentation in the Zagreb Applied Ethics Conference 2015 (ZAEC 2015) to be held from the 29th June to the 1st July 2015 in Zagreb, Croatia.

The plenary lectures at the conference will be given by Emeritus Professor David Heyd (Hebrew University of Jerusalem & Tel Aviv University – Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics) and Professor Eric T. Olson (University of Sheffield – Department of Philosophy).

The aim of the conference is to gather philosophers and scholars from other disciplines primarily, but not exclusively, from Central and Southeastern Europe who will present papers on various topics in contemporary applied ethics, ranging from particular case studies to more general (foundational and methodological) considerations. In keeping with the intention to promote rational and critical approach to, and public understanding of, the work in applied ethics, we encourage clearly structured submissions adhering to the principles of conceptual rigor, soundness of argumentation and scientific accuracy.

For more information, see the Call_for_Papers and the Application_Form.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF COMPUTER GAMES

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN ATHENS 2011

April 6th-9th, 2011

Call for Papers

We hereby invite scholars in any field of studies who take a professional interest in the phenomenon of computer games to submit papers to the international conference “The Philosophy of Computer Games 2011”, to be held in Athens, Greece, on April 6th-9th 2011.

Accepted papers will have a clear focus on philosophy and philosophical issues in relation to computer games. They will also attempt to use specific examples rather than merely invoke “computer games” in general terms. The over-arching theme of the conference is Player Identity. Papers are encouraged to explore one of the following topics and invited speakers will focus on this area.   On the other hand, this is not the sole domain the conference will cover and submissions dealing with other relevant aspects of game philosophy are also welcome.

Player-Avatar Identity

In describing gameplay there seems to be a presumed identity-relation between the player and her avatar. What an avatar does can be taken to be what the player does, and what happens to the avatar can be taken to happen to the player. This presumption even makes it possible for a player to point to her avatar and claim “that is me”.

We invite papers on nature of the reported identity-relation between player and avatar, whether it is a as a cognitive relation, a form of embodiment or a metaphysical relation capable of directly extending personal identity to the avatar.
Identity and Conceptions of the Self

Modern philosophy offers various models  and critiques of the self (and the ‘other’)  through the work of Descartes, Husserl, Wittgenstein etc. Computer games – explicitly as well as implicitly – adopt these models and offer interactive representations of self-models that can be acted out and thereby evaluated.

What are the affinities between such philosophical models of the self and the structural elements of computer games? Do the models express or contradict the structures?

Identity and Immersion

Issues of identity in virtual environments, and consequently in digital games, have been discussed primarily from the perspective of the opportunities for formation, experimentation and expression of social identity. These discussions importantly highlight the role that games play in re-writing identity through digital gameplay. The focus here is on the presentation of self to others in a virtual environment. This addresses one aspect of immersion, namely the increased sense of inhabiting the environment by virtue of others being aware of the player within the environment.

We invite papers on a second, equally important aspect of immersion-as-habitation: the effect that this sense of habitation of virtual environments has on the self. What is the influence on player identity of absorbing into consciousness a game-world and its inhabitants?

Identity, Artifacts and Memory

Recent philosophical (and technological) studies of ontologies for digital documentation and archiving practices connected with the coding and verification of personal, collective, artefactual and other cultural identities make it of pressing interest to examine the role of gameplay activities and digital artefacts that represent new forms of cultural capital. These can be viewed as traces of an ongoing narrative construction of individual and collective memories and identities deposited in game worlds.

How is the construction, during gameplay, of individual and collective gameplay identities, memories and forms of gaming capital, related to eventual digital artefacts that derive from such activities?
Your abstract should not exceed 1000 words including bibliography.  If your submission falls under one of the four headings, please indicate which one.

Deadline for submissions is 17.00 GMT, February 1st, 2011. Send your abstract to submissions@gamephilosophy.org.

All submitted abstracts will be subject to double blind peer review, and the program committee will make a final selection of papers for the conference on the basis of this. A full paper draft must then be submitted by March 31st and will be made available on the conference website.  There will be an opportunity to revise the paper after the conference.

Notification of accepted submissions will be sent out by March 1st, 2011.

5 Odgovora to “Natječaji”

  1. Ja bih rekao da esej mora biti posvećen nekoj temi iz povijesti filozofije (“any aspect of the history of philosophy”), što znači da će gotovo nužno biti povezan s jednom ili više figura iz povijesti filozofije. Na primjer, esej koji je dobio nagradu 2007. imao je naslov Margaret Cavendish’s Epistemology, što se može vidjeti iz gore navedenoga linka.

    • Da, nisu baš posve jasni kriteriji natječaja, ali ja bih rekao da još druga polovica 19. stoljeća pripada “povijesti filozofije”, dok bi 20. stoljeće potpadalo pod suvremenu filozofiju, tako da Wittgenstein i Quine ne bi odgovarali propozicijama natječaja.

  2. Matko Gjurašin said

    Dobiti nagradu za vlastiti esej zvuči primamljivo, ali imam toliko mizerno znanje da ne znam o čemu bih mogao pisati.😦

    • Matko, nemojte biti tako malodušni. Doduše, činjenica je da u našoj akademskoj zajednici postoji jako malo sličnih inicijativa, naročito onih namijenjenih studentima, što ne doprinosi prevladavanju takve malodušnosti. Nedostaje nam zdravoga kompetitivnoga duha. (Velim “zdravoga” kako bih izbjegao prigovor koji se znao čuti tijekom studentskih prosvjeda da navodna komercijalizacija visokog obrazovanja neminovno vodi u nezdravu kompetitivnost među studentima, tako da bi oni više ne bi htjeli međusobno dijeliti bilješke i skripte. Kao da je dosadašnja spremnost na dijeljenje bilješki i skripti pridonijela kvaliteti studiranja…)
      Kada bi Odsjek za filozofiju raspisao nagradu za najbolji filozofski esej, i kada bi ta nagrada bila novčana (npr. u pristojnom iznosu od 2.000kn koji bi se izdvajao iz sredstava Odsjeka koja dolaze od studentskih participacija), pitam se koliko bi se naših studenata prijavilo na taj natječaj. Dakako, smislenost ovakvog natječaja i broj prijava uvelike bi ovisili o tome tko bi bio u komisiji.

  3. Matko Gjurašin said

    Pavel Gregorić je rekao:

    Da, nisu baš posve jasni kriteriji natječaja, ali ja bih rekao da još druga polovica 19. stoljeća pripada “povijesti filozofije”, dok bi 20. stoljeće potpadalo pod suvremenu filozofiju, tako da Wittgenstein i Quine ne bi odgovarali propozicijama natječaja.

    Ja bih rekao potvrdno. Postoji povijest analitičke filozofije u dvije knjige i obuhvaća razdoblje od 1900. do 1975. godine.
