We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the XI Symposium Platonicum: Plato’s Phaedo. We welcome proposals for papers from all IPS members. If you intend to submit an abstract, please make sure that your IPS dues are paid for 2013-16 at least one week before making your submission. If you are unsure whether you are a member in good standing, check the status of your account at www.platosociety.org or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IPS Symposium welcomes submissions of long abstracts, between 800 and 1200 words. No identifying information should appear within the abstract itself, in order to ensure the impartiality of the double-blind review committee. Abstracts will be considered in all the five official languages of IPS (english, français, italiano, español, deutsch).

Submissions will be evaluated by IPS Executive Committee through double-blind review system. No preference will be given on the basis of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, institutional affiliation, or other demographic factors. Abstracts will be judged based solely on the following criteria:
- Academic rigor
- Relevance to the Symposium theme (Phaedo)
- Clarity and coherence
The committee reserves the right to disqualify submissions solely on the basis of insufficient or excessive length of the text.
