The 10th Conference of the International Institute for Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis will be held from July 11 to 14, 2011 at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). The Conference promotes the study of practical action and social interaction, and provides an international forum for researchers working in the areas of ethnomethodology and conversation analysis.

The program includes four plenary lectures – by Christian Heath & Paul Luff (King's College London), Douglas W. Maynard (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Wes Sharrock (University of Manchester) and Marja-Leena Sorjonen (University of Helsinki) – as well as more than one hundred paper presentations in panels and individual sessions, data sessions and a poster exhibition.
