Dear colleagues,

this is the second call for the 2012 summer school on CMC methodology to be
held in Ascona, Switzerland, from 17-23 June, 2012.

*Summer School:*

*Research on computer-mediated communication in linguistics (RCMCL)*

*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.
