We invite researchers to submit proposals that address the connections of representation and dialogue, which can be problematized in at least the three following ways: 1. Dialogue as representation, 2. Normative perspectives on dialogue/representation issues, and 3. Representations of dialogue. The conference also welcomes any contribution addressing the question of dialogue. The notion of dialogue is not restricted to a specific view of dialogue nor to a particular model but covers the whole range of language use including approaches based on other concepts such as conversation, discourse or social interaction. The following premises are considered to be common ground, even though they may also be discussed: (1) Language is primarily used for communication, (2) Communication is always dialogic. Based on this inclusive acceptation of the notion of dialogue, we hope that many scholars and students will be interested in participating in this unique conference.
