Sponsor a Delegate Program

Sponsor a Delegate

The International Conference on Conversation Analysis (ICCA) is offering you a chance to help delegates from developing countries a chance to participate in the 2023 Conference in Brisbane, Australia (June 28th- July 2nd 2023) or apply for support to attend the Conference.


ICCA23 has made it its goal to be truly multi-national and culturally diverse, and to be inclusive of Conversation Analysts studying and working across the globe. The current Sponsor a Delegate Programme aims at providing more colleagues from developing countries a chance to participate in the 2023 Conference. The International Society for Conversation Analysis (ISCA) is already sponsoring five fee-waiver scholarships for eligible delegates. Additional donations will enable further reduction of costs for eligible delegates, and enable us to extend financial support to more delegates.

Key features

Delegates from Low, Middle Income countries can be sponsored by High Income Country peers - by individual Conversation Analysts, or by institutions or cognate associations. Sponsored delegates will have the opportunity to participate in the conference, to learn about new research on Conversation Analysis, to share their own knowledge and to meet colleagues working internationally in the field.
