DATES: March 20–21, 2021

The Global Center for Religious Research (GCRR) is hosting the 2021 International Simulation Theory eConference, which will bring together scholars, specialists, and philosophers from all over the world to discuss the different problems, proofs, and solutions in current simulation theory. The purpose of this multidisciplinary virtual conference is to advance the scientific and philosophical understanding of how the simulation hypothesis may or may not answer important cosmological, metaphysical, and even theological questions plaguing humanity.

This two-day academic eConference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for presenters to feature new scientific research, as well as philosophical and religious theories, relating to the intersection of the social-sciences/humanities and the simulation hypothesis.

Because this academic conference is held online, everyone can attend from the comfort and safety of their own home at lower costs without having to worry about travel and lodging expenses.

Specialists and philosophers, as well as researchers, professors, graduate students, and other scholars, are encouraged to submit abstract proposals (200-500 words) to present at this year’s virtual academic conference. All research presentations will then be published in an upcoming supplemental issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal, Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry (SHERM). Presenters can also feature and promote their own publications during the conference for free!


  • Do presentations need to relate to religion, theology, or metaphysics?

    • No. While GCRR does specialize in religious studies, we regularly discuss and publish on topics​ outside of religion. That being said, we are interested in receiving presentations that explores the intersection of religion with the topic of this conference.

  • How do I figure out when I am presenting in my time zone?​

  • What if I can't present live because of the time zone difference? Can I submit a video presentation, instead?​

    • Yes, absolutely. Just make sure we have your video file in time for the conference.​

  • Will the presentations be ​video recorded?

    • Yes, and you will have access to those videos after the conference ends.

  • What is the deadline for submission?

    • Abstract Proposal Deadline: February 21st, 2021

  • Where/how do I submit my proposal?
