Many thanks to all who attended, supported and participated in the 2009 Ancient Philosophy Society conference at Loyola College in Maryland.
Gary Scott and his wife Hilde were very generous hosts and we had a very productive and inspiring conference.
As we begin to turn our attention to our 10th Annual Conference to be held at Michigan State, April 22nd to the 25th, 2010, I thought it important to pause to reflect upon the wonderful community of scholars we have actively participating in the Society.
Once again this year, I found myself grateful for the spirit of dedicated philosophical dialogue and friendship that animated our gathering.
The Excutive Committee thanks all who participated this year and who continue to support the Society. We look forward to our SPEP session on October 29th at the Marriot Key Bridge Hotel in Arlington, Virginia and then, of course, to our 10th Annual Independent Meeting at Michigan State.
For those of you attending this week’s 9th Annual Conference hosted by Loyola College in Maryland, I thought it would be nice to link to some of the resources we have posted here related to the logistics of the conference:

For those of you traveling by air to Baltimore for the 2009 APS conference, we would like to encourage you to use the light rail service from BWI to the Timonium Business Park stop which is a block from the Crowne Plaza Baltimore North-Hunt Valley hotel.
We understand that the ride on the light rail does not require a transfer and will take about an hour to an hour and 20 minutes from BWI to the Timonium Business Park. To take a cab from BWI would not take significantly less time.
To encourage this, we want to link here to:

We are happy to report that we have again received an enormous number of submissions to the 9th Annual Meeting of the Ancient Philosophy Society to be held this year at Loyola College in Maryland April 23-26, 2009. This year have received over 75 submissions for a program that has traditionally accommodated about 14 papers (not including invited keynote speakers.)
Although we have historically held to a tradition of having only plenary sessions at our annual conference, due to the large number of submissions we have been receiving over the past few years, we are looking into the possibility of having a few concurrent sessions so we can accept more of the excellent work submitted.
Decisions about the program will be made by February 15th, 2009 and we hope to have the online conference registration page for this year up and running by the end of December 2008.
Thank you to all who took the time to submit a paper to the Ancient Philosophy Society and know that we are working to accept as many excellent papers as possible.
The Ninth Annual Independent meeting of the Ancient Philosophy Society will be held in Baltimore, Maryland at Loyola College in Maryland and take place at the Graduate Center Timonium Campus from April 23-26, 2009.
Papers on any topic in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy are invited. Papers should be no more than 3000 words, 30 minutes reading time. Panel proposals will be considered, though they should be as complete as possible. Please prepare papers for blind review, with personal information on a cover sheet. Abstracts will not be considered.
