Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce an upcoming Summer School 'Research on
computer-mediated communication in linguistics (RCMCL)', to be held between
17-23 June 2012, Ascona, Switzerland.

This international summer school addresses methodological issues on
computer-mediated communication in connection with language use. The school
caters to advanced MA and PhD students already working on CMC topics.  Its
aims are as follows:

1)        To discuss cutting edge theoretical literature on methodologies in
CMC/CMD (there will be a reading list).
2)        To provide students with a set of tools to aid them in the
preparation and analysis of CMC data.
3)        To give students a chance to introduce their own research projects
and discuss methodological challenges (with both other students and staff).

A reading list with central theoretical literature will be provided closer
to the time. Teaching methods will be a combination of input presentations,
hands-on workshops and feedback sessions.

Our teachers are:
Daniel Alcón, University of Freiburg
Jannis Androutsopoulos, University of Hamburg
Michael Beisswenger, University of Dortmund
Brook Bolander, University of Basel
Andreas H. Jucker, University of Zurich
Miriam A. Locher, University of Basel
Annette Markham, University of Aarhus

Location: A beautiful hotel at the Lago Maggiore in the Italian speaking
