In 2011 the Conference will be in the historic city of Belfast.

Target participants: Scholars and postgraduate students of interpersonal communication and social interaction. Research students are encouraged and supported to take advantage of the formal and informal mentoring opportunities afforded by participation in the Conference and other activities of the Section.

The Conference provides members with valuable professional development opportunities, including networking and presentation, and learning about the latest trends in interpersonal communication and social interaction research, teaching and learning. The Conference also provides an important occasion for recognising the achievements and contributions of members in the field.

The keynote speakers are:

Professor Peter Schulz (Institute of Communication and Health, University of Lugano, Switzerland)
Professor Monica Whitty (Department of Media and Communication, University of Leicester, England)
