The LISO conference promotes interdisciplinary research and discussion 
in the analysis of naturally occurring human interaction. Papers will be 
presented by national and international scholars on a variety of topics 
in the study of language, interaction, and culture. The papers primarily 
employ analysis of naturally occurring data drawing from methodologies 
that include conversation analysis, discourse analysis, ethnographic 
methods, ethnomethodology, interactional linguistics, and interactional 
sociolinguistics. We welcome abstracts from graduate students and 
faculty working in the areas of Anthropology, Applied Linguistics, 
Cognitive Science, Communication, Education, Linguistics, Psychology, 
and Sociology.

Presenters will have either*:

(a) 20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion

(b) 25 minutes for a data session (small group presentation/discussion 
of research and data).

* to be determined by the abstract review committee


Abstracts must be submitted via the online abstract submissions system 

Abstracts must be submitted in .doc, .pdf, .txt, or .odt  format. 
Abstracts must be no more than 500 words long and should not include the 
author's name or any other identifying information. The abstract should 
include the following: (1) a clear statement of the main point or 
argument of the paper; (2) a brief discussion of the problem or research 
question with reference to previous research and the work's relevance to 
the area of study; (3) a short piece of data to support the main point 
or argument; (4) conclusions and/or implications of the research, 
however tentative.

In the case of an abstract longer than 500 words, only the first 500 
words will be read. Papers will be selected based on evaluation of the 
anonymous abstract.
