Young Epistemologist 2002

2002 RUTGERS EPISTEMOLOGY CONFERENCE

YOUNG EPISTEMOLOGIST PRIZE

The Rutgers Epistemology Conference announces the second annual prize for the best essay submitted to the Conference by a person with a Ph.D. obtained by the time of submission but not earlier than ten (10) years prior to the date of the conference. (Thus, for the Conference on April 19/20th of 2002, the Ph.D. must not have been awarded prior to April, 1992.) The prize winning essay will be presented at the annual conference and will be published (along with the invited papers) in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research. The winner of the prize will receive an award of $1,000 plus all travel and lodging expenses connected with the Conference.

Details

The essay may be in any area of epistemology. The essay must be limited to 5,000 words (not including footnotes and bibliography) and submitted on a PC-formatted disk along with three (3) printed copies. The essays will be judged blindly and, thus, the three printed copies (but not the disk copy) must be prepared in such a way that the author's identity is completely masked. Therefore, the name, institution, and all other references pertaining to the identity of the author are to be omitted from the manuscript, notes and bibliography. Only papers submitted in this fashion will be considered.

Papers must be postmarked by December 1, 2001. The winner of the prize will be announced by February 1, 2002. By submitting the essay, the author agrees to have it posted on the Rutgers Epistemology Conference Webpage and published in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research.

Please send all papers (along with the disk and a self-addressed postcard that will be returned to entrants acknowledging receipt of the essay) to:

Hotel 2003

2003 RUTGERS EPISTEMOLOGY CONFERENCE

TRAVEL TIPS AND HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS


Where To Stay

All sessions will be held at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, NJ. A limited number of reduced-priced rooms are available to those attending the Conference. The reduced rate is $113 per night for a single or double room. To reserve rooms, call the Hyatt reservation line at 1-800-233-1234 or 1-732-873-1234 and inform the reservation clerk that you will be attending the "Rutgers University Conference," and give him/her this reservation code "GREC3." You should make the reservations before April 10th.  After that date, there is no guarantee that rooms will be available at all since the hotel tends to be fully booked.

Transportation

You should fly into the Newark Airport which is about 25 miles from the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, and take the State Shuttle from the airport. Flying into one of the other local airports (John F. Kennedy or La Guardia) is possible but not desirable since they are about 2 hours away and the transportation costs to the airport are greater. But if you have to fly to one of them, the shuttle service mentioned below does provide transportation from those airports to the Hyatt in New Brunswick. Reservations for the State Shuttle service should be made at least three days in advance by calling the State Shuttle at 1-973-729-0030 or through their website at http://stateshuttle.com.

The cost of the shuttle from Newark is $25.75 (plus gratuity and taxes) each way per person. This is significantly cheaper than a taxi, which costs over $45 from the airport to the hotel.


Train service is available from New York and Philadelphia via NJ Transit on the North East Corridor Line and Amtrak. But only a very few Amtrack trains stop in New Brunswick. The train station is located at the corner of Easton Avenue and Albany Street (Route 27). The Hyatt is only about a quarter of a mile away on Albany Street. Coming out of the train station, make a left on Albany Street. You will walk through New Brunswick's business district and see the hotel a couple of blocks away on your right. (If you want to take a taxi, they are available at the train station.)

(1) Exit Turnpike at Exit 9. (2) Bear Right onto Route 18 North. (3) Once on Route 18 move quickly to the LEFT lane and stay in it approximately 1 mile (4) then shift to the right lane for about another mile and take the exit for Route 27 South. (5) Loop under Route 18 and at second light, make a left. (6) The hotel is on the left hand side.

-From North via Route 80

(1) Route 80 East to Route 287 South. (2) Exit Route 287 to New Brunswick, Easton Avenue South (Exit #10). (3) Stay on Easton Avenue until it ends (7 miles). (4) Make a left onto Albany Street (Route 27). At the second light, make a right. The hotel will be on your left.
