We received nearly forty papers in response to the CFP for the 2017 meeting of ISNS, and once again chose three papers for presentation at the meeting and for subsequent publication in the special issue of Inquiry devoted to ISNS papers. Three members of the Executive Committee reviewed and scored each submission (all blind review), producing about ten finalists, which were reviewed by the entire Executive Committee (again blind review). Once again, many of the strongest submissions, including some that narrowly missed being chosen, were by philosophy PhD students, which is very heartening. Congratulations to the authors whose papers will be presented at the 2017 ISNS: they are philosopher Harold Langsam (University of Virginia), and PhD students Ian Dunkle (Boston University) and Claire Kirwin (University of Chicago).
The papers from the 2016 ISNS conference in Bonn are now available at Inquiry.
