Meeting Description:

The 22nd “Arbeitstagung zur Gesprächsforschung (Annual Conference on Discourse and Conversation Analysis in German speaking countries), originally planned for this year, will be set up again from March 24 - March 26, 2021, as a virtual conference. The conference is organized by the Pragmatics Department of the Leibniz-Institute for the German Language, Mannheim/Germany.

The special theme of the conference in 2021 will be “Bedeutung in Interaktion'' (Meaning in Interaction).

Please see the Call for Papers below for more information. We especially invite all contributors of this year’s unfortunately canceled conference to (re-)submit an abstract. We are looking forward to many contributions!

Call for Papers:

We invite contributions that analyze practices of constituting, clarifying and negotiating local meaning in interaction, e.g. regarding linguistic expressions or structures, actions, or the intentions of actions. Contributions from an empirical and/or methodological point of view from Interactional Linguistics, Conversation Analysis and related approaches are welcome.
Contribution formats include individual papers and short project presentations. Project presentations are not restricted to the special theme, but can cover all sorts of topics in the field of the analysis of social interaction based on audio- and video-data.

Please note: Due to organizational and technical reasons, we cannot invite any data sessions for the 2021 online conference.

Papers can be given in German and English. However, German will be the main conference language and a passive knowledge of German is important for participating fully in the conference.

Abstracts should be up to 2500 characters long (including spaces) and provide information on research question(s) and results, data and methods, as well as stage of the analysis. They should be submitted to by November 16, 2020. Further information can be obtained directly from the organizers ( and the website: (in German only).
