An Invitation to Brisbane

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As Chair, and on behalf of the Local Organising Committee of the 6th International Conference on Conversation Analysis 2023, it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend ICCA 2023 in Brisbane, Australia.

This international conference brings together academics, researchers and service providers to showcase the latest research and best practice in conversation analysis. Our theme ‘Branching Out’ reflects the growth and application of conversation analysis in different academic disciplines, different professional and workplace contexts, and across the globe.

ICCA 2023 marks the first time the conference will be held in the Southern Hemisphere and in the Asia-Pacific region. Preparations are well under way to deliver an exciting program and new opportunities for collaboration, as well as the opportunity to experience Australia with its unique wildlife and environment.

Brisbane is a modern, dynamic and vibrant city with direct access to Australia’s top tourist attractions making it an ideal destination for touring before and after the Conference. It is home to world-class restaurants, a diverse nightlife and burgeoning music scene, stylish shops and urban art space.

We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane!
