Registration closes: June 18th, 2021


Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be submitted in English by February 21st, 2021. The submission Web page for DNC4 is https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dnc4 .

Notifications of acceptance are expected to be communicated by February 28th, 2021. 

At the time of submission participants do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation.  As a result, we have decided to offer registration fees that are the same for on-site and off-site presenters/participants, that is a registration fee of EUR 60 will apply in either case (in addition to the DN Association’s membership fee) and a reduced registration fee of EUR 40 for enrolled students without access to institutional funding. The DiscourseNet Association membership fee of EUR30 (https://discourseanalysis.net/DN) needs to be paid before or while registering for the DNC4 congress, in the latter case it needs to be added to the registration fee (60+30=90 EUR in case of regular registration, 40+30=70 EUR for reduced registration).There is a limited number of places. Registration will be closed when full.

Please note that the DiscourseNet General Assembly and the election of three legal representatives of DN will be held / combined with the DNC4 programme, possibly as a closing event of the congress on the 22nd October.

After the conference, a book proposal for a thematic volume (or possibly two) based on selected conference papers will be submitted to Palgrave Macmillan for the “Postdisciplinary Studies in Discourse” series.
