Symposium Platonicum XIII - Submission Deadline Extended

Call for Abstracts: Symposium Platonicum XIII 


Due to Covid uncertainty and disruption, the Executive Committee of the International Plato Society has extended the deadline for submissions of abstracts for Symposium XIII. 
New Deadline: November 29, 2021
Now that the US has now opened its borders to those who have been vaccinated we are hopeful that the International Plato Society will have a robust in-person Symposium XIII on Plato’s Sophist at the University of Georgia on July 18-22.  Nonetheless, we will continue the Zoom option for presenters and attendees.
Abstracts should be 800-1200 words and written in any two of the Society’s five official languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, German).  They should be anonymized for blind review, combined into a single file, and sent as pdf or Word attachments to: by November 29, 2021.  Your name and academic affiliation should appear in the body of the email.  The Executive Committee will blind review submitted abstracts and announce its decision in January, 2022. For more information on our July, 2022 Symposium, visit the IPS website:
For your abstract to be considered, you must be a current member of the International Plato Society.  Information on membership criteria and on how to join the IPS and how to renew your membership is available at:
