Meeting Description:

The Second International Conference on Internet Pragmatics (NetPra2) will be organised *online* 22–24 October 2020 by the University of Helsinki.

The theme of the conference is Interactions, Identities, Intentions.

The goal of the conference is to promote theoretical and empirical research into internet pragmatics, and bring together researchers interested in exploring the use of language and other semiotic modes in internet-mediated interaction, with pragmatics conceived broadly as a perspective on how people produce and interpret utterances in contextualized interactions.

There will be 3 panels and over 60 presentations. The keynote speakers are Anita Fetzer (University of Augsburg), Tuomo Hiippala (University of Helsinki), Sirpa Leppänen (University of Jyväskylä), Julien Longhi (University Cergy-Pontoise) and Ruth Page (University of Birmingham).
