EPICS IX is an International Conference dedicated to analysing and discussing possible (new) interactions between intercultural, cognitive and social approaches in pragmatics with a view to looking into communication in the 21st century. In line with this, the conference theme will be “Communication in the 21st Century: Intercultural, Cognitive and Social Pragmatics”.
Topics for presentations may be, but are not limited to:

* New or recent interactions between different frameworks or approaches in pragmatics.
* Sociocultural and cognitive factors affecting production and comprehension of language/discourse in face-to-face or mediated (by telephone, computer, etc.) communication in a variety of genres (included social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and settings (classroom, parliaments, service encounters, etc.).
* Impact of culture and context on pragmatic processes in comprehension.
* New developments, interactions or challenges in pragmatic analyses of:
- Morphology, lexicon, syntax and/or prosody.
- Procedural meaning.
- Types of discourse (professional, academic, political, religious, humorous, etc.).
- (Im)Politeness and relational work in diverse settings and communication modes.
- Language aggression and conflict.
- Expression and processing of emotions.
- Projection and understanding of identity.
- Figures of speech (irony, metaphor, hyperbole, etc.).
- Interlanguage pragmatic development.
