Some proposed research areas include:

- Epistemicity: Relation between evidentiality and epistemic modality
- Cross-linguistic and typological studies on evidentiality
- Evidential lexical units and constructions and their relation to evidential grammatical markers
- Types of evidentiality: Direct vs. indirect
- Reported speech and reportative evidentiality
- Epistemic stance and inter/subjectivity in discourse
- Interactional approaches to evidentiality and/or epistemic modality
- Corpus-based studies on evidentiality and/or epistemic modality

A selection of papers based on contributions presented in this conference will be published in a special issue of an international journal and/or a prestigious academic publisher.
