Meeting Description:

Multimodal digital communication is the main theme of this conference meant to
attract multidisciplinary research on a wide range of issues from teaching and
learning to analysing multimodal digital data appearing in multiple
communication arenas. Drawing on the work related to the European project
EU-MADE4LL, European Multimodal and Digital Education for Language Learning,
the conference intends to bring together international scholars belonging to
various fields of research sharing an interest in exploring recent
developments in multimodal digital communication. We wish to tackle the
complex arenas of digitality by reflecting on a broad range of multimodal
texts, social practices and communities: content management systems, corporate
web pages, institutional web pages, blogs, corporate videos, mashup, fanvids,
social media, video-mediated interaction, digital broadcasting, digital
performing arts, gaming, networking sites and media sharing platforms. We are
keen to address this ever-increasing complexity of digital communication by
adopting a broad range of multimodal, semiotic and educational perspectives.

Keynote speakers:
Marina Bondi, University of Modena, Italy
Carey Jewitt, UCL - Institute of Education, London, UK
Rodney Jones, University of Reading, UK
Gunther Kress and Jeff Bezemer, UCL - Institute of Education, London, UK 
David Machin, Örebro University, Sweden
Theo van Leeuwen, University of Technology, Sidney and University of Southern
