Scope: The basic idea behind the second meeting of this conference 
series is to start from specific or descriptive levels of linguistic 
structures of language used in interaction. These include segmental 
phonetics, phonology, prosody, syntax, lexis and semantics. Particular 
linguistic phenomena observed in interaction with language disorder 
patients, children acquiring language, etc. will also be discussed 
during this conference. Its goal will be the description of these 
structures as resources for the organisation of conversational 
interaction and the validation of this description. This will be done by 
showing how the participants demonstrably embrace these structures and 
devices as a resource.

The conference is open to researchers world-wide, whether from industry 
or academia. Participation will be limited to 100. The emphasis will be 
on discussion about new developments. The conference fee covers 
registration, full board and lodging. Grants will be available, in 
particular for nationals under 35 from EU or Associated States.
