The 5th International Conference of Conversation Analysis – ICCA-18 – will be held at Loughborough University, UK, from 11th to 15th July 2018, with pre-conference workshops running from the 9th to the 11th July.

Programme update: We are making good progress with programming the conference, and we anticipate publishing the draft programme by the 16th March.

You are reminded that presentations will be included in the programme only if the first (named) author (as submitted) has registered for the conference. So if you are a first named author who has not yet registered for the conference, please do so as soon as possible.

It may help you to know that the conference will begin at approximately 16.30/4.30pm on Wednesday 11th July – with the first of the plenary presentations, followed by a reception (there will be tea and refreshments available earlier in the afternoon). The conference will close at approximately 17.00/5pm on Sunday 15th July; panels and presentations will run until about 16.00/4pm, after which there’ll be refreshments and a closing meeting.
