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!
About the Logo
By Casey Coolwell-Fisher
Meeanjin (Brisbane) has always been a place of gathering for ceremonies, trade, sharing of knowledge and conducting business.
This artwork represents people coming together, into Meeanjin, having conversations and sharing knowledge.
The circle represents the world, the outer waves signify people travelling and meeting in Meeanjin.
The Brisbane River is represented in the centre element and the footprints of the travellers are depicted in the outer waves.
The people (“U”shapes) in the centre, represent a collective of voices coming forward.
The small gathered dots depict the knowledge and communication being shared.
The lines, in the circle signify the branching out and sharing of the conversations into the world.
