    Dear colleagues:

    Please find below the 2nd call for papers for the II
    International Symposium on Intercultural, Cognitive
    and Social Pragmatics, which will be held at the
    University of Seville (Spain), in May 26-28 2004.
    Although this year's edition will be mainly dedicated
    to Intercultural Pragmatics, needless to say, papers
    on Relevance Theory issues are welcome.

    We are looking forward to receiving your contributions
    and meeting in Seville this spring.

    Best wishes,

    Manuel Padilla Cruz


    Dear colleagues:

    The research group Intercultural Pragmatic Studies
    (English-Spanish): Pragmatic and Discourse Aspects of
    the University of Seville (Spain) is pleased to
    announce its Second Symposium on Intercultural,
    Cognitive and Social Pragmatics (EPICS II 
    Encuentros de Pragmatica Intercultural, Cognitiva y
    Social), to be held in May 26-28 2004.

    The second edition of the symposium will be devoted to
    the introduction of the new journal Intercultural
    Pragmatics, published by Mouton de Gruyter. The
    journals editor-in-chief, Dr. Istvan Kecskes,
    Professor of Linguistics and Education at the SUNY at
    Albany and Mr. Peter Grundy, Associate Principal
    Lecturer, English Language Centre, at Northumbria
    University, and member of the advisory board of the
    journal, have confirmed their presence as the
    symposiums keynote speakers. Also, a plenary session
    of the symposium will be dedicated to a formal
    introduction of Intercultural Pragmatics during
    which the participants will be able to meet the
    editor-in-chief, some of the board members, and
    representatives from Mouton the Gruyter to discuss the
    mission, policy and content of the journal.

            The Symposium will serve as a forum where applied
    linguists and practitioners of Pragmatics and
    Discourse Analysis can meet, share experiences,
    discuss common problems, and present papers on their
    latest research in the field. EPICS II also wishes to
    create awareness among graduating students of the
    growing interest in this area of linguistic expertise.
    We welcome original papers, written in English (45
    minutes in length, the last 10 minutes will be devoted
    to questions and discussion) on any topic relevant to
    the mission of Intercultural Pragmatics. The
    journal is especially interested in papers that:

    - explore the implications of pragmatics research for
    theoretical developments and practical applications in
    the fields of second language acquisition and
    intercultural communication,
    - discuss language in use in the context of
    cross-cultural interaction,
    - analyze pragmatics research findings from the
    perspective of bi- and multilingual development,
    - study the nature of interaction of bi- and
    multilinguals and language learners,
    - investigate the effect of dual language and
    multilingual systems on the development and use of
    pragmatics skills,
    - examine the teachability and learnability of
    pragmatic skills in instructional environments.
