The next conference of the International Institute for Ethomethodology and Conversation Analysis (IIEMCA) will be held at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), July 10-14, 2011.
The aim of the conference is to promote the study of practical action and social interaction and to provide an international forum for researchers working within the domains of Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis.
This call for papers invites abstracts addressing issues at the intersection of social action, language use and interaction within the framework of Ethnomethodology, Conversation Analysis and/or connected approaches (e.g., Interactional Linguistics). Abstracts should be submitted in English.
Abstracts should clearly state the main point or argument of the paper. They should make explicit on which empirical data and/or conceptual arguments they are based. They should situate the topic of the paper with reference to previous research. ?Also, authors should explain in what way the paper contributes to the development of the field.
Abstracts for three kinds of submissions can be proposed: panels, individual papers, and posters.
Proposals for panels with 3-6 speakers (i.e. 1 or 2 slots) are welcome. Panel proposals should be submitted in two steps:

– second, if the panel is accepted, abstracts of the panel’s papers (400 words) should be submitted individually by the speakers through the Conference website. Abstracts are to be submitted anonymously and should indicate the title of the panel to which they belong.
