How are APT meetings different?

APT conferences differ from many other professional conferences by focusing only on political theory and social and political philosophy, by being inclusive in most other respects, by embracing openness in organization and administration, and by minimizing expenses and maximizing value for our members. For details on these points, see "About APT."

In more concrete terms, APT meetings differ by combining a number of features: long two-hour sessions, with at least 45 to 60 minutes for discussion; pre-circulation and archiving of papers, which limits the need to read the whole paper; long coffee breaks, common meals, and open receptions to encourage intellectual socializing; and determined effort to combine enjoyment with serious scholarship.
