CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Young Researchers Conference of the Center for Research on Social Interactions (CRSI)
16 – 17 February 2017, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland
In the past few decades, there has been an exponential growth in the interest in research on social interaction in various academic disciplines such as psychology, linguistics, anthropology, neurosciences, education, and artificial intelligence. In many respects, social interaction research has garnered such popularity due to the highly interdisciplinary research objectives that incorporate an array of different interactional phenomena to study and theoretical and methodological frameworks to explore.
The main goal of the Center for Research on Social Interactions (CRSI) and its affiliated doctoral school is to promote this interdisciplinarity by facilitating collaborations between scientists working on social interaction. The CRSI doctoral school introduces young researchers working on social interaction to an interdisciplinary approach, and helps them develop their theoretical and methodological backgrounds in the field by means of epistemological and empirical lectures, conferences, training events, and workshops.
In organizing this two-day-conference, we offer young researchers working on social interaction an opportunity to present their work and to learn from experienced scholars in an environment that fosters dialogue and feedback across academic disciplines. We hope that these days will facilitate research collaborations and provide an opportunity to the participants to explore new methodologies, research tools, and theoretical frameworks in order to improve their own research.
