Dear SIEPM Members and Visitors,
On behalf of the Organizers of the XIVth International Congress of the SIEPM "Homo – Natura – Mundus: Human Beings and their Relationships", which will take place in Porto Alegre, Brazil, July 24-28, 2017, I kindly invite you to participate. Please note that the second and final deadline for submitting abstracts for papers and proposals for sessions is January 20, 2017 (not December 31, 2016, as in the first circular). If you only want to participate without giving a paper, your can register also later, until the Congress starts.

Prof. Maarten Hoenen
SIEPM Secretary General
The SIEPM was founded in 1958 with the goal of promoting the study of medieval thought. We have around 800 members in 45 different countries across six continents.
In the international context the SIEPM is the foremost society for the study of medieval philosophy and intellectual history. It organises international congresses and fosters exchange among scholars. In addition we offer congress- and research-stipends to young scholars.
In order to connect specialists from around the globe we publish the Bulletin de Philosophie Médiévale and the series Rencontres de Philosophie Médiévale. Through these publications every member has the oppertunity to share and discuss their thoughts with some of the leading specialists in their particular field.
Membership is open to all who have established themselves through publication as researchers in medieval thought.
