Meeting Description:

«Online Communication, Discourse and Context»
3rd international Symposium: Micro-Analysis of Online Data (MOOD-Z)
University of Zurich, Switzerland
July 16–17, 2015

The Micro-Analysis of Online Data (MOOD) network is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who explore theoretical and methodological issues related to the study of computer mediated communication (CMC). Although our broad focus is on the application and/or adaptation of conversation and discourse analytic techniques to online data, we are also sensitive to the fact that much online data consist of visual or hypertextual material. Therefore we are also interested in developing novel methods that are tailored towards multimodal environments with limited verbal and paralinguistic data from platforms such as Pinterest to Soundcloud to SecondLife.

The 2015 symposium will include two keynote speakers:

Prof. Dr. Miriam Locher
University of Basel

Dr. Sean Rintel
University of Queensland and
Microsoft Research Cambridge

2nd Call for Papers:

We would like to remind you of the call for papers for the 3rd international Symposium “Micro-Analysis of Online Data” (MOOD-Z) that will take place at the University of Zurich, Switzerland, from 16-17 July 2015.

Please note the following change: In addition the conventional formats (presentation and data session), there will be the possibility for Ph.D. students to discuss clear-cut questions concerning their thesis with senior researchers.

Proposals (max. 500 words) for presentations (15 minutes) or data sessions (60 minutes) should be submitted by 28 February 2015.

We invite proposals for data sessions or for paper presentations that address theoretical, methodological, and method-based issues related to the analysis of CMC. We particularly encourage submissions related to the following topics:

- The application of conversation analysis and various forms of discourse analysis to the study of online interaction.
- Methodological challenges related to carrying out micro-analyses of online discourse/ CMC environments, particularly with methodologies typically applied to face-to-face interactions.
- Theoretical considerations around the communicative conditions for online (written) communication, e.g. addressing

issues such as physical vs. virtual presence, and how processes of reading and writing differ in their communicative conditions and consequences from face-to-face interaction.
- The issue of ‘place’ and ‘space’ in (relation to) online discourse.
- Technologies that support the analysis of online interaction.
- Ethical dilemmas inherent to the study of online interaction.

In addition there will be slots giving Ph.D. students the possibility to discuss clear-cut questions concerning their thesis with senior researchers. Please contact us if you are interested in this format.

Submission instructions: Proposals (max. 500 words) for presentations (15 minutes) or data sessions (60 minutes) should be submitted as Word documents to mood-zds.uzh.ch by 28th February 2015. Please include the full title of your proposed paper, institutional affiliation, and contact information (including email).
