We have been in touch with local officials regarding the reopening of Savannah-area bridges following the storm that passed through the area today. Due to the current bridge conditions and the low temperatures expected tonight, we have been told not to expect ground transportation between downtown Savannah and the Convention Center and Westin hotel to be possible until midday tomorrow.

Based on information provided by Savannah officials, we currently plan for all sessions beginning at 12 noon tomorrow to be held as scheduled, with shuttles provided to bring attendees from the Hyatt to the Convention Center in time for those sessions. We will be in touch with further details about the shuttles tomorrow morning, as soon as the transportation company provides them to us. Additionally, the poster session scheduled for 11 a.m. will begin at noon.

For sessions scheduled in the 9 a.m. to 12 noon timeslot tomorrow, we welcome people with access to the convention center to attend and participate in those sessions, much the same as today. We are also organizing parallel sessions at the Hyatt during that timeslot. Andy Cullison (andycullison@depauw.edu) is the point person for those parallel sessions.

Information for those at the Hyatt or on the downtown side of the river:

  1. If you are scheduled to present on Thursday morning, fill out this form - bit.ly/apa-thursday tonight.
  2. Meet at Percival at 9 a.m. to finalize a schedule and then start sessions shortly after.
  3. The schedule for parallel sessions at the Hyatt tomorrow will be here - bit.ly/apa2018hyatt

To the extent possible and upon request by participants, we are rescheduling some sessions (as well as some individual paper presentations) for Thursday afternoon. The APA meetings app will soon be updated with a revised schedule for tomorrow afternoon, and paper schedules will be available at registration tomorrow.

For quick reference, the following are the sessions that have been rescheduled:

Thursday, 9 a.m. to 12 noon

  • 1S: Something Stinks: Smell and the Problem of Secondary Qualities 

Thursday, 12 noon to 2 p.m.

  • New Session: Jay Newhard (East Carolina University), “A Kripke-Style Solution to the Liar Paradox” (Previously in 2F)
  • G4C: Society for the Philosophy of Technology
  • New Session: Alison Springle (University of Pittsburgh) “Practical Perceptual Representation” (Previously in 5L) and Abigail Gosselin (Regis University) “Philosophizing from Experience: First-Person Accounts and Epistemic Justice” (Previously in 1C)
  • 1J: Symposium: How Should Deep Self Theorists Account for Weakness of Will?
  • G2A: Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry

Thursday, 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

  • 3R: Democracy After Trump

Thursday, 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

  • G4G: International Berkeley Society

Friday, 11: 15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

  • New Session: James Kintz (Saint Louis University) “Social Interactions, Aristotelian Powers, and the Ontology of the I-You Relation” (Previously in 2B)

Should weather conditions and/or transportation plans change, we will provide further updates via email, the APA website, and social media. We are doing our best to adapt under difficult and changing circumstances; thank you for your understanding, patience, and cooperation.

I have probably missed my session completely. I have been stuck on I 95 for going on 5 hours now. If possible I i would like to let to the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy organizers know my deep regrets. Sanjay Lal Clayton State University

The shuttles are NOT running. It would be helpful if you posted an update about that.
