Atypical Interaction Conference AIC2019: Resources and Challenges in Participation:


It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Atypical Interaction Conference, AIC2019, to be held in Helsinki, Finland from 17th to 19th June 2019.

The aim of the conference is to gather together researchers interested in the study of asymmetric and atypical interaction. The conference especially aims to advance research, which uses Conversation Analysis (CA) to investigate social interactions involving participants with communication impairment. Studies on other developmental and/or clinical interactions are also welcome.

With the theme "Resources and Challenges in Participation," we invite presentations that "describe and analyze the practices through which different kind of parties build social action together by participating in structured ways in the events" (Goodwin & Goodwin 2004). As a multidisciplinary research field, we would like to welcome all those with interest in asymmetrical or atypical interaction.​ We accept papers, posters, and data sessions. You can also submit a panel proposal of one or more sessions. Each session lasts 90 minutes. Abstract Submission is open until December 9th, 2018.

Important dates:

  • Abstract submission deadline: December 9th, 2018
  • Notification of acceptance: February 28th, 2019
  • Early bird registration closes: March 15th, 2019
  • Regular registration closes: May 1st, 2019

Confirmed plenary speakers are:

  • Michael Clarke, University College London, U.K.
  • Douglas W. Maynard, University of Madison-Wisconsin, U.S.
  • Charlotta Plejert, Linköping University, Sweden
