The program is now tentatively set for the first annual Online Philosophy Conference (OPC), and I hope you will find that it offers an impressive line-up of excellent philosophers presenting cutting-edge work in many different areas of contemporary philosophy. We offer this conference as a way for you to engage these philosophers and this work from the comfort of your own home, office, coffee shop, park ... anywhere but the cold confines of a hotel conference room. We hope that you will spread the word, especially among your undergraduate and graduate students who may not have the opportunity to attend such a conference in person and see philosophers presenting their work and responding to the comments and questions of their audience. Please consider sending an email to your students (or relevant listserv) and your colleagues to publicize this event. Given that the OPC is open to anyone in the world with access to the internet, it could be the largest philosophy conference in history. It's success will depend entirely upon how many people participate. So, anything you can do to help promote the conference would be greatly appreciated. The plan is to post a set of papers (usually 8), along with commentary, each week in May. We've tried to offer a diverse line-up each week. "Attend" whichever "talks" look interesting to you and post comments or questions as you please (comments will be moderated for relevance, appropriateness, and length). The authors will be encouraged to respond to the commentator's remarks and to the thread of questions and comments at several points during the week, though they cannot be expected to address every question and comment. So, OPC will fill the month of May with exciting (and free) philosophical action. We hope you will be part of it.
