Australasian Postgraduate Philosophy Conference 2023

The Australasian Postgraduate Philosophy Conference (APPC) is an annual conference that provides a great opportunity for postgraduate philosophy students to present their work, debate their ideas, receive feedback from peers, and find collaborators across institutions.

This year, the conference will run on the 14th and 15th of December. This event will offer an unique opportunity for early-stage academics to share their ideas, network, and learn from each other. The conference venue is the University of Western Australia, one of the best universities in Australia, located in the beautiful city of Perth. Travelers visiting Perth can enjoy its beautiful beaches, stunning landscapes, unique wildlife, vibrant food and wine scene, and rich cultural attractions.


The structure of the conference will feature six parallel sessions running throughout the day, each consisting of 25-minute or 50-minute presentations. There will also be one keynote speaker per day, giving attendees the opportunity to hear from early-career researchers.


The Arts building, located on UWA campus, will host the conference, with all rooms conveniently located within the same building. Furthermore, the breaks will allow attendees to take advantage of the various outdoor spaces both within and surrounding the Arts Building and the UWA.

If participants choose to drive to campus, they are restricted to parking in the green bays, primarily available in three-hour slots. Alternatively, parking spots along the river outside the university permit extended hours, albeit with associated fees. It's important to note that the conference coincides with university graduations, resulting in limited parking availability. Please plan accordingly.


There are two accessible entrances: one at the north entrance of the building and another one at the south entrance.
