Every year, the PGSA votes on topic proposals for the graduate student conference. A committee of graduate students organizes and hosts this event led by one or two student conference directors and a faculty advisor. Students gain experience in organizing a conference that can include securing keynote speakers, student presentations, commentary, creating budget proposals, funding applications, organizing blind review of submitted papers, calls for papers, and catering events. The conference typically ends with a reception at a local restaurant for all speakers and conference attendees to provide an informal environment for further discussion. The graduate conference receives strong support from the department and has been funded in the past by the Canadian Journal of Philosophy.
