The Society for European Philosophy was inaugurated in 1997, and has held an annual conference at a different UK Higher Education institution every subsequent year. SEP aims to provide a forum for research and teaching in European philosophy, and to foster a network of scholars and experts in European philosophy, working in a range of different disciplines. The SEP conference has become an indispensable annual event for UK post-graduate students and scholars, and now attracts participants from all over Europe and beyond. Since 2005 the SEP annual conference has been run jointly with the Forum for European Philosophy, helping to make the three-day conference the largest event of its kind in Europe.
