It is managed by an executive committee of academics in European Universities. The Society aims to support teaching and research in all areas of European philosophy broadly construed. It provides a forum where people working on topics in European philosophy within various different disciplines, in any country, can come together and pursue ideas. It aims to promote the understanding of the various traditions of European Philosophy within the Anglo-American philosphical world, within academia more broadly, and within the wider public sphere. The SEP conference is now a crucial annual event for students and scholars of continental philosophy. From 2005-2011 the SEP annual conference was run jointly with the Forum for European Philosophy, helping to make the three-day conference the largest event aimed at researchers and others interested in Modern European Philosophy in Europe.
